Poncho Sanchez' Conga Cookbook
Develop Your Conga Playing by Learning Afro-Cuban Rhythms from the Master
Publisher: Cherry Lane Music
Artist: Poncho Sanchez
Composers: Poncho Sanchez, Chuck Silverman
Grammy-award winning conga player Poncho Sanchez and Chuck Silverman have joined forces to produce this book of riffs for beginning conga players or percussionists who want to incorporate Latin or conga techniques into their playing style. This unique book/online audio pack covers all the essential styles you'll need, including many of the grooves that have made Poncho one of the world's most in-demand congueros. The tracks on the accompanying audio, available for download or streaming online, are performed by a world-class band – members of the Poncho Sanchez Latin Jazz Band – with and without conga parts, so after you learn the material in the book, you'll be able to practice by playing along. Plus – there is a tasty bonus. Not only does the music have a decidedly Latin flavor, but so do the spicy hot cooking recipes from Poncho that are interspersed throughout the book!
