A man was exploring the African jungle and came upon a tribe of natives, their presence underscored by the distinctive and monotonous beating of drums. The man spoke with the tribe and they allowed him to stay with them and sleep on their grounds.

The first night, the man didn’t sleep a wink due to the ongoing drumming so he spoke to the chief. “Chief, I got no sleep last night. Could you maybe stop the drumming for a night so I could rest.”

The chief replied, “The drums must not stop.”

The man figured it was their culture and focused on enjoying the day, studying and spending time with the tribe.

That night, the drums again kept the man awake for the whole night and in the morning he spoke with the chief.
“Chief, please! I need some sleep; couldn’t the drums cease for just one night for my health?”

The chief replied, “The drums must not stop.”

The man, exacerbated, let the issue drop and tried to focus on the day at hand, but could not focus due to lack of sleep and the incessant pounding of the drums.

That night, the beating of the drums left the man sleepless yet again in the morning he angrily approached the chief.
“Chief, I’ve just about had it. The drums must stop; it is impossible to get and rest with them.”

The chief replied, “The drums must not stop.”

“Why! Why can the drums not stop? What happens when the drums stop?!”

The chief replied, “Bass solo.”
