This 4 CD box set represents our desire to showcase a panorama of Cuban music. Almost all of these CD's contain never released music from all parts of Cuba, and represents the majority of Cuban genres of today and yesterday.
There are certain fundamentals that anyone playing Cuban music must understand. These go beyond clave and montuno. You must learn about the role of hand percussion and how the singer phrases his melody and inspirations. Don’t skip over this material simply because you may feel that you don’t need to know it.
At last, you can take a lesson from a Cuban piano master. Emilio Morales, along with musicologist Jon Griffin, will guide you through the full array of Cuban styles. From traditional Cha-cha-chá and bolero to son moderno and timba. This book will show you actual examples of Cuban music, not just a bunch of exercises to practice.
In this book, you will learn about the Cuban tres and how to play it correctly. This is an intermediate to advanced series, but even beginners can benefit.
