Conversations in Clave from Warner Bros. Publications Is Ultimate Technical Guide to Afro-Cuban Rhythms


MIAMI, Fla. – The Afro-Cuban rhythm style is "hot," but it dates back centuries, before the drum set was even invented. Mastering the multiple and complex rhythms of this ancient percussive style will expand any drummer’s creative horizons. Conversations in Clave, a new book/CD set from Warner Bros. Publications helps drummers take this musical journey.

Written by internationally acclaimed percussionist, Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez, Conversations in Clave is the ultimate technical study of four-way independence in Afro-Cuban rhythms. Famous for his brilliant left-footed clave technique and inspiring rhythms, Hernandez offers drummers invaluable lessons on developing four-limb coordination… and expanding their rhythmic vocabulary.

By providing insights into understanding the clave and the relationship between eighth note and triplet rhythms, Hernandez is helping drummers develop the skills and master the freedom required to "move with the music" of the Afro-Cuban style.

The attractively packaged book and CD set features stylistic groove transcriptions by Ken Ross and moving sample performances by Hernandez. A very complete method, Conversations in Clave also includes dexterity, independence and four-way coordination exercises, as well as a variety of helpful improvisational ideas.

Conversations in Clave retails for a suggested $24.95.
