What surprised me is that they also played the legendary track Red. Again, it's much better performed live under this one than the original recording from the Red album.
Bill and Pat play the drums dynamically while the guitar portion of Fripp still referred to the original version but much more lively. Well , I also love how the drums fill in transition pieces beautifully so that this track sounds really great. The interlude part has ambient sound which sounds like a keyboard work but It must be coming from guitar work.
All other tracks are great as well like Dinosaur where the drumming is really dynamic in nature combining two personalities with their own style. Belew vocal is powerful as well. Sex, Sleep, Eat, Drink, Dream is also much better recorded live here than the studio version. I enjoy the drumming and basslines. My favorite track One Time is also featured here.
As this one is simple in composition it serves as a break after many improvisations along the way from start. One Time was performed excellently, flawless with full expression of Belew.
It returns back to discrete music under Indiscipline which is another great track also. I love the percussion improvisation throughout the song - which were not there under original studio track. This track is really wonderful man!!! The drumming part is really articulative and inspiring at the intro part. It flows with all music where all instruments play together and immediately stops when the vocal starts to enter the music, Again Oh man It's so powerful!
The way belew sings is really great! And at the end of the track he shout : I like it Yeah, I like it Mr. Detailed messages could be sent from one village to the next faster than could be carried by a person riding a horse. In the 19th century Roger T. Clarke, a missionary, realised that "the signals represent the tones of the syllables of conventional phrases of a traditional and highly poetic character. However, the Serer language and its relative Senegambian languages are not tonal, unlike almost all other Niger-Congo languages.
The problem was how to communicate complex messages without the use of vowels or consonants but simply using tone. An English emigrant to Africa, John F. Carrington , in his book The Talking Drums of Africa , explained how African drummers were able to communicate complex messages over vast distances.
The process may take eight times longer than communicating a normal sentence but was effective for telling neighboring villages of possible attacks or ceremonies. The message "Come back home" might be translated by the drummers as: "Make your feet come back the way they went, make your legs come back the way they went, plant your feet and your legs below, in the village which belongs to us".
Single words would be translated into phrases. For example, "moon" would be played as "the Moon looks towards earth", and "war" as "war which causes attention to ambushes". The extra phrases provide a context in which to make sense of the basic message or drum beats. These phrases could not be randomized, when learning to play the drum students were taught the particular phrase that coincided with each word.
This reason alone made learning to talk in drum language very difficult and not many were willing to take the time to do so. Ironically, when the West understood the mechanism of the drums, they had already begun to be used less often in Africa.
Also, words often lost their meaning. In an interview with Carrington, he explained that when words that are not used often, the phrases that correspond to them are forgotten. When given the beat for young girl, the drummers thought the phrase played was in fact the one for fishing nets.
As emphasized by Finnegan,  the messages sent via drums were not confined to utilitarian messages with a marginally literary flavour.
Drum languages could also be used for specifically literary forms, for proverbs, panegyrics, historical poems, dirges, and in some cultures practically any kind of poetry. The ritualized forms and drum names constituted a type of oral literature. Among some peoples such as the Ashanti or the Yoruba , drum language and literature were very highly developed. In these cultures, drumming tended to be a specialized and often hereditary activity, and expert drummers with a mastery of the accepted vocabulary of drum language and literature were often attached to a king's court.
Various sizes of hourglass talking drum exist, with the dimensions of the drum differing between ethnic groups, but all following the same template. The Tama of the Serer, Wolof and Mandinka peoples is typified by its smaller dimensions, having a total drum length typical of 13 centimeters 5 inches with a 7 centimeter 2. This produces a much higher pitched tone than other talking drums of the same construction.
In Yoruba talking-drum ensembles, this is used alongside smaller talking drums similar to the Tama , called Gangan in Yoruba language.
Playing styles are closely linked with the drum's construction and the tonal qualities of each language. There is a clear difference in playing styles between areas with predominantly Fulani and Mande -speaking populations and traditionally non-Mande areas further east. The predominant style of playing in areas further west such as Senegal , Gambia , western Mali and Guinea is characterized by rapid rolls and short bursts of sound between the stick holding hand and accompanying free hand, and correlates with the various pitch accent and non-tonal languages heard in this area.
This is a style typically heard in the popular Mbalax genre of Senegal.
