Are there any tribal drummers out there?


Senior Member
Hey everyone, I'd just like to see if theres any drummers out there like me who listen to ethnic/tribal music and study it to incorporate it into thier playing, similar to the styles of Joe Nunez (Soulfly), Roy Mayorga (while in Soulfly), Igor Cavalera (Sepultura), and Jeaan Dolabella (Sepultura). I do it alot personally and i'd also like to know how people study it and incorporate it, and what kind of setups you use to achieve it.


Ps.- I'm about half Cherokee (have family on the scrolls) and incorprate Cherokee water drums into my kit and certain techniques from them and African techniques into my playing.
