Learn the classic rhythms of Afro-Cuban music with master percussionist and Berklee professor Ricardo Monzon.
In this Berklee Workshop, Monzon demonstrates the patterns and instruments that form the beating heart of the Afro-Cuban tradition, on clave, conga, timbale, bongo and guiro. You’ll play along as he starts slowly with the basic patterns, then increases the tempo with a number of variations. By the end, you’ll have a solid understanding of how to play and practice essential Afro-Cuban rhythms.
