An original composition of music with an African theme that consists of only percussive instruments. It as an imagining of the drums that were thought to incite rebellion as mentioned in "Voyage to the Island of Jamaica." Recorded on an HP Envy PC with an AKAI MP61 keyboard, Mixcraft Pro Studio 8, and cinema sound effects software.
