The way Ive learned this dance from my favourite male African dance performer Abdoulaye Camara, it comes in three parts, starting with a 4 count rhythm that is followed by a slow 6 count rhythm and finishes with a very fast 4 count rhythm. The first two parts are taken from the Djembe Boom Boom site that is linked above. The third part is the simplified part Im used to. The first 6 count part is taken from the Yapp pages (see link above) and the second one is again the simplified variation I am used to.
