The way I´ve learned this dance from my favourite male African dance performer Abdoulaye Camara, it comes in three parts, starting with a 4 count rhythm that is followed by a slow 6 count rhythm and finishes with a very fast 4 count rhythm. The first two parts are taken from the Djembe Boom Boom site that is linked above. The third part is the simplified part I´m used to. The first 6 count part is taken from the Yapp pages (see link above) and the second one is again the simplified variation I am used to.


I also recently learned Wolosodon from my Senegalese teacher Pape Seck. I have also been searching the Internet to find written notations (also for otherrhytms) but I haven't been able to find it/them.So I gave it a try myself.
