Cuban music is experiencing a surge in international popularity as people from all over the world are drawn to its incredibly catchy rhythms. Musicians know that playing Cuban music requires a relaxed, steady feel for the clave, which is the underlying groove not always easy for newcomers to grasp. The percussion lesson in Drum Atlas: Cuba will teach drummers how to internalize the clave and build layer upon layer of rhythm on that foundation, all the while showing you how to incorporate those infectious Cuban rhythms into your drum playing. Start by adapting traditional conga rhythms to the snare drum and then add bass drum, tom-toms, hi-hat, cymbal, and cowbell to the mix.
Even if you are not primarily a Cuban-style drummer, you'll find that studying these rhythms and taking advantage of clave lessons, will help your sense of syncopation and limb independence. Sample bass and piano parts are included so drummers can try out these rhythms with his/her band. With the many varieties of Cuban styles in this instructional book and CD, you'll have plenty of opportunities to play a truly authentic Cuban sound.
