BEYOND SALSA BASS VOL.1 RELEASED!!

El primer volumen para el bajo de la serie de libros "BEYOND SALSA"

The first bass book in the BEYOND SALSA series of Afro-Cuban musical instruction methods, Beyond Salsa Bass Volume 1 (For Beginners) includes bass tumbaos for each of the piano tumbaos (aka, montunos) in Beyond Salsa Piano, Vol. 1, and contains many additional bass tumbaos plus other exercises, making this first bass volume is more than twice as long (compared to Beyond Salsa Pianio Vol.1). The book begins by categorizing the most common Latin bass tumbaos by their rhythms and then proceeds to tell the history of Latin music from a bassist’s perspective, with notation for bass tumbaos from each era covered: changüí, rumba, son, danzón, big band and son montuno (a detailed study of Arsenio Rodríguez). This is the first book in the new standard for contemporary Latin bass styles. 186 pages (186 páginas) with 212 audio tracks (212 pistas).

Click here to visit Kevin's Beyond Salsa Bass Vol.1 hard copy book page 

Beyond Salsa Bass Volume 1

The Audio product includes a fast and slow file for each bass tumbao in the book as well as various example files corresponding to the text. Note that for every piano tumbao in our sister volume, Beyond Salsa Piano, Vol.1, there is a corresponding bass tumbao in the Beyond Salsa Bass, Vol. 1 book and audio product. In these cases, the piano audio is included in one channel. In other cases, the audio consists of just bass and clave. If this seems confusing, think of it this way: Beyond Salsa Piano Vol. 1 is a subset of Beyond Salsa Bass, Vol. 1. The bass book has a bass tumbao for every piano tumbao in the piano book, but the bass book also has many more additional tumbaos for tracks not covered in the piano volume.

New Release from Orquesta POMO - "El Juego"

Nuevo sencillo de la Orquesta POMO

La Orquesta Pomo toca un estilo propio de timba con un sonido especial. Con una gran dosis e influencia del soul/pop/jazz y la gran inspiración de la salsa de Cuba, Colombia y Puerto Rico. El material que interpreta la orquesta es original. El inicio de la orquesta fue en el 2011 con Jonas Pomo y Cecilia Ferrer. Jonas comenzó a componer la música y Celilia luego las letras. Los integrantes de la banda fueron luego elegidos detenida y cautelosamente por Jonas y consiguó los que él quería. La primera aparición en público de la "Orquesta Pomo" fue el 5 de abril en Estocolmo, Suecia.

Otro punto de interés es que Jonas fué uno de los cantantes de Calle Real en su reciente gira de Sur América. Un pianista de jazz y otros estilos, él ha trabajado con muchos otros artistas y grupos en Suecia como La Tremenda, Jorge Cordero, Gilito y su Clave y por supuesto Calle Real.
