Sample Africa is an African music sample library exclusive to Prime Loops, that offers super-authentic audio samples from the various tribes of the continent.

Audio demo:


The pack is split into four main folders:

  • Drums – 57 gubhu drum loops recorded at 85, 90, 95, 100 and 115 BPM
  • Herdboy Whistles – 40 loops in dry and wet versions;
  • Ululation – 49 ethnic vocal samples (ululations), again offered dry and processed;
  • Voices – a collection of vocal one shots and loops featuring war shouts, traditional chants and more.

My opinion:

Zulu Warriors Vol. 1 is an authentic sample library of African ethnic samples. So far, so good, but you may ask about its usability. Personally, I find a great use in any modern pop and dance track, for example layer a gubhu drum loop with a plain hip hop beat, chop the vocals and use them in your trap banger, add some originality to your mainroom track by adding some ethnic whistles etc etc.

I appreciate the quality of audio recordings which are offered untouched (dry) and processed mainly with some reverb (wet). Also I appreciate the variety of rhythms and melodies included, plus the great selection of ethnic vocals. In conclusion, Zulu Warriors Vol. 1 is a solid release, breaking the monotony and adding authenticity.
