Overview

From the spiritual beat of Africa comes a sample library unlike any other. Atsia includes African percussion instruments traditional to the Ewe Tribe of Ghana. The Ewe tribe is located in the Southeastern section of Ghana in the Volta region. Originally the songs and dances of the tribe were performed before war, but in modern times mostly for rituals and dance. "Atsia", meaning "style" or "to display", is a social dance considered by most to be one of the oldest styles of dance and music in West Africa. It is a collection of songs and dances created by the Ewes, used in rituals and recreation for hundreds of years.

This unique, incredible collection was recorded at the legendary Blue Jay Studios through an SSL console. Stereo samples, natural ambience, heavily multi sampled with up to 4 velocity samples for each different type of hit. Also includes looped grooves of individual instruments, in both 4/4 and 6/8 time. Over 400 meg of samples!

All instrument hits and grooves were performed on authentic instruments, acquired by Joe Galeota on his many trips to Africa. Joe is an Associate Professor in the percussion department of Berklee College of Music, and the founder and owner of Jag Drums, manufacturers of quality African percussion instruments. Extensive 11 page documentation gives details on all the instruments and how they are played.
