These ongoing workshops will focus on developing conga technique; understanding clave and understanding rhythmic concepts of percussion parts and songs for Havana style Rumba Guaguanco, Rumba Columbia and Yambu. There will also be opportunities to learn other traditional and ritualistic afro-cuban music forms as well as some popular and carnival styles.
With an interest in West African, Caribbean and Latin music, Adrian Waters practices, performs and teaches a variety of percussion instruments and traditions with a particular passion for Cuban Rumba. He has studied under the direction of Raz from One Voice Music, Christian Weaver of La Timbala and in Havana under the tutelage of Chaguito, Amado from Clave Y Guaguanco and Giovani of Rumberos de Cuba. Ade currently performs regularly with salsa band “July Julay and the Mambo Kings” and a new fusion project called “Afro-Brew”
