Short of tribal and African percussion samples? The cupboard bare of balafons and devoid of djembes? Can’t spy any shakers, track down any talking drums or discover any congas you haven’t used already? We’ve all been there. Thank the lord for Basement Freaks‘ George Fotiadis then who, with the assistance of Smokey Bandits‘ percussionist Nick Tourbis, has knocked out (pun intended) the Tribal & African Percussion Sample Pack for the Black Octopus label to liven up your Afro-funk (or South American cumbia come to that) breaks.
