Product Details


Brazilian Conga opens the door to familiar and to new worlds for the fans of the Brazilian atabaque with its rhythms adapted to the conga. You will meet some "old acquaintances" among the typical basic grooves of Brazilian music for one conga or timbau (Samba de Caboclo, Barravento, Ijexá, or Congo) but also relatively unknown rhythms for two or three congas---Brazilian rhythms originally not intended to be performed on the atabaque and even modern pop rhythms. Additionally, the method provides coordination exercises and a number of pieces for small percussion ensembles.

This book by Gilson de Assis with its accompanying CD, which offers recordings of all the individual grooves, will surely be of great help to both the novice and the experienced percussionist. It will not only lead you to a better understanding of the playing techniques and structures but also help you capture the feeling and prepare the groundwork for a correct interpretation of the Brazilian atabaque rhythms.
