Conga 1

ONE DRUM: Conga is the signature percussion sound of Afro-Latin music, and percussionists can play with almost anybody! In level 1, reproduce the basic Cuban tumbao pattern used in son or salsa (including cha cha and mambo), and get an introduction to the Puerto Rican patterns bomba and plena.
In Conga 2, drum the rhythm patterns of the Havana style: rumbas, comparsa, afro 6/8, palo and abaqua, and tighten your bomba and plena. Be the backbone or the soloist!

UN TAMBOR: La conga es el instrumento de percusión icónico de la música afrolatina, ¡y los percusionistas pueden tocar con casi cualquier otro músico! En el Nivel 1, se dará una introducción a los golpes manuales principales de la conga, y aprenderá a tocar el ritmo del tumbao cubano que se usa en el son y la salsa.
