Afro-Cuban Songs for Latin Ensemble
Afro – Cuban music is my great love. These beautiful melodies and rhythms have fascinated me for a long time. In searching for suitable Play-alongs for myself and my students, I found that there are hardly any featuring this great music. The ones I found were almost exclusively produced with synthesizers, samplers and computers. I made the decision to create my own work with real musicians and “genuine” instruments.
In order to achieve the energy as well as the heart and soul of Afro – Cuban music, all instruments heard were played “live” without a click track. It was important that the music sounded authentic making it a joy to play along with it.
