Tambourine gets some respect

Two more via Daniel, the first a duet between master ZOUMANA DEMBELE from Burkina Faso on djembé and tambourine wizard CARLO RIZZO:

and in this one your attention is particularly called to the musician at 2:20 and 3:50... and of course to the boots at 0:55 and 3:00. Do I hear "lobsta lobsta" in the refrain?

...and if you wander into the YouTube comments, you'll get a whole edjakashun in ethnocalumny...
