The book presents a huge variety of poly-rhythmic ideas from around the world, using a 'grid-type' system that explains where the rhythmic beats are in relation to the pulse of the phrase. It is a work for intermediate level musicians who have a deep fascination with intricate rhythms and how they actually 'work'.
