LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Alfred Music Publishing, the leader in educational music resources since 1922, is now distributing Richie Gajate-Garcia: Play the Cajon, an instructional DVD from Drum Channel.

Richie Gajate-Garcia: Play the Cajon contains basic cajon lessons and includes methods to making a cajon performance sound like a complete drum set in contemporary rock and Latin rhythm styles. Beginning to advanced players will be challenged to learn how to add additional percussion instruments to their cajon playing.

Richie Gajate-Garcia is a master percussionist and innovator of cajon performance. Fondly known in the music world as “El Pulpo” (which means “The Octopus” in Spanish), Richie’s coordination, independence, and mastery in performing with multiple percussion instruments establishes him as one of today's most sought after Latin percussionists and clinicians. As a bonus, Richie’s percussive prowess is featured via a band performance with his hybrid cajon kit taking center stage.

Richie Gajate-Garcia: Play the Cajon DVD (93-DV10000901) is now available for $24.95 at music retail stores and at alfred.com/drums.
