Donkey Konga trilogy - Cane and Rinse No.405

Post by JaySevenZero »


“Jungle Boogie!”

Nintendo wanted in on the ‘BeMani’ action in the early-mid 2000s, and so roped in Taiko no Tatsujin producers Namco to reskin their drumming rhythm games with a Donkey Kong flavour. Three Donkey Konga games followed in quick succession, each featuring minimal changes to anything but the lineup of songs – an eclectic mix of pop covers, classical, latin, TV themes and game tunes for players to batter out beats to. Leon, Brian, Darren and Leah all have fond memories of bashing their barrels, as do a supergroup of keen percussionists from the Cane and Rinse community.

Music featured in this podcast:

1. Donkey Konga Theme by Junko Ozawa

2. Banana Tengoku by ?
