Description

The Tomas Cruz Conga Method: Volume 3 is the first educational product to tackle the complex subject of Timba, the new musical genre which has been played in Cuba since 1989. Timba represents a quantum leap forall the instruments of the rhythm section and especially the congas.

The recordings of Tomas Cruz are considered the most advanced examples of Timba conga- playing and so fascinated were the three co-authors thatthey sought out Tomas Cruz and spent a year and a half studying his style and meticulously documenting it before even considering the idea of publishing it. After many hundreds of hours of passionate research, this laborof love eventually reached fruition as Volume III. Volumes II & I were then written to trace the roots of the style and to understand the path Cruz' took to arrive at his phenomenal level of technical mastery and rhythmiccreativity.

Much more than a collection of patterns or exercises, Volume III analyzes Timba arrangements from beginning to end, explaining the role of the congas in each section, the relationship to the clav.
