Horacio Hernandez – Conversations In Clave
Aug 26 2015
“Conversations in Clave” features Grammy Award winnning Latin Percussionist Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez. Horacio has changed the face of Latin music by pushing the envelope of modern drumming. His Latin fusion style melds the folkloric clave with the fierce punch, crisp snap, and deep grooves of today’s jazz, pop, and rock. Horacio has been the rhythmic force behind Grammy Award-winners Alejandro Sanz, Carlos Santana, Michel Camilo, Roy Hargrove, Chucho Caldes, Paquito D’Rivera, and Gonzalo Rubalcaba.
This DVD is the ultimate technical study of four-way independence based on Afro-Cuban rhythms. Its methodical approach will help you develop four-limb coordination and expand your rhythmic vocabulary. Understanding the clave and the relationship between eigth-note and triplet rhythms will help you master the mutiple and complex rhythms of Afro-Cubans styles.
The ultimate technical study of four-way independence in Afro-Cuban music features Horacio giving you “private lessons” taken directly from his book Conversations in Clave, breaking down every aspect of his amazing approach to coordination and performance concepts with clave and Afro-Cuban rhythms on the drum set. Horacio also plays several amazing unaccompanied solo improvisations. Includes a photo gallery, behind-the-scenes footage, and more.
