Wakatou card game

This card game was invented after a simple observation quoted previously: players are quickly locked in their playing habits and often reproduce the same rhythms. The didgeridoo method provides technical advice. Wakatou proposes to develop your creativity.

Wakatou therefore has three purposes :

  • First of all, enable you to have fun while learning !
  • Then, make you discover rhythms thanks to ever-changing combinations.
  • Finally, to help you work on other things than your own rhythms by leading you towards new variations.

How to play ?

You can either write down your own rhythm and then develop it by replacing some cards by others, or, to make it more exciting, you can draw out cards randomly. You will then have a new rhythm to play each time you pull a card out !


Wakatou consists of 128 cards divided into 4 main categories :

  • Beats
  • Sounds
  • Breathings
  • Variations

It is sold in a box with a leaflet.
