Kariga Mombe for Practice


Available as CD or download

SKU: music-3501 Categories: ,


Kariga mombe (‘Undefeatable’) is typically the first song the new student learns. You may wish to start out practicing together with the same part you are playing, also trying the track with hosho, to hear where the beat fits with your part. Then, try practicing together with the part you are not playing, until you can hear the two parts meld. As you become comfortable playing the parts, try the faster tempo tracks.
