Skin On Skin

Uploaded .

Improvisation on congas and very fragile, clay Moroccan bongos (which my brother found for me from an African display at some zoo!). These bongos are basically clay pots with permanent, very thin goat skins stretched over the top - they can not be tuned.

4/4 200bpm

I'm a percussionist first and foremost so I love this. Awesome jungle jam. Those congas sound nice and full.

When I was young, I remember dreaming about what I called "jungle drums"; I'm not sure why. I dreamed your song...long ago in the depths of some astral flight apparently. Thanks for recording it.

My Dad played the drums, ha, I thought he did! This is tribal indeed, there's a little tinkle in there too, nice touch.
