Doudou Ndiaye Rose: Famous Senegalese drummer dies

BBC Online: 20 August 2015

Renowned Senegalese drummer Doudou Ndiaye Rose has died aged 85, his family has announced.

Famous for playing the sabar drum, he toured the world and played with jazz legends such as Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, and the Rolling Stones.

He led an orchestra of more than 30 drummers, many of them his children and grandchildren.

The UN cultural agency declared him a "living human treasure" in 2006 for keeping alive traditional rhythms.

Rose continued to play up until his death and a few years ago explained how happy he was to have spawned a dynasty of percussionists.

"I thank the good lord. My children have learned the language of percussion well," he told the AFP news agency in 2010.
