Grammy-award winning conga player Poncho Sanchez and Chuck Silverman have joined forces to produce this book of riffs for beginning conga players or percussionists who want to incorporate Latin or conga techniques into their playing style. This unique book/CD pack covers all the essential styles you'll need, including many of the grooves that have made Poncho one of the world's most in-demand congueros. The tracks on the accompanying CD are performed by a world-class band - members of the Poncho Sanchez Latin Jazz Band - with and without conga parts, so after you learn the material in the book, you'll be able to practice by playing along. Plus - there is a tasty bonus. Not only does the music have a decidedly Latin flavor, but so do the spicy hot cooking recipes from Poncho that are interspersed throughout the book!Cherry Lane Music Staff is the author of 'Poncho Sanchez' Conga Cookbook Develop Your Conga Playing by Learning Afro-Cuban Rhythms from the Master' with ISBN 9781575603636 and ISBN 1575603632.
