OddGrooves African Drumming

OddGrooves African Drumming was influenced by the rhythms of African percussion groups and applied to the drum kit by OddGrooves’ Chief Groove Officer, Magnus Brandell. The African pack is a great choice if you play afro pop or World Music, and this could very well be the best thing that happened to your Paul Simon- or Peter Gabriel-inspired tracks.

None of the grooves are programmed or quantized as we like the raw, organic feel of a live drum performance. Want those programmed, perfectly lined-up grid-ironed, dead-sounding beats in your sequencer? Look elsewhere. Our grooves are living and breathing drum performances that will make your tracks come alive.
