Atsić - West African Dancing Drums

From the spiritual beat of Africa comes a sample library unlike any other. Atsić includes African percussion instruments traditional to the Ewe Tribe of Ghana. The Ewe people are located on the seacoast of Southeast Ghana,Togo, and Benin. The word Atsić means \"show off\" or \"display\", taken from a war dance, popularly known as Togo Atsić. Originally the Ewes performed Togo Atsić before war, but in modern times it is done in social public performance. In addition to the percussion instruments of the Ewe, instruments from other parts of Ghana, West Africa, and even Brazil have been included in this collection.

This unique, incredible collection was recorded at the legendary Blue Jay Studios through an SSL console.
