Phil Maturano's Afro Cuban Drumming, an overview for Drumset, is designed to give the drumset player a birds eye view of the Afro Cuban drumming experience. If you've always wanted to get into Latin styles, this is your chance.
Phil's attention to detail is fantastic, using two of the most popular styles of Afro-Cuban music, players of every level can learn from the very beginning! Start by seeing and hearing the patterns played on the original; instruments then learn how to adapt everything you see on the drumset, all with close-ups and detailed explanations. Then you will cover a topic rarely explored in this kind of instructional material - how to apply these patterns in a rhythm section! By adding one percussionist at a time, we see and hear the function of the drumset in Afro Cuban music.
As everyone knows, there is more to this music than just patterns, to really understand the language of this music Maturano uses his unique system for decoding the phrasing of all African descent music - RTS.
