Raul Rekow, Karl Perazzo – Supernatural: Rhythm & Grooves
Oct 21 2016
Karl Perazzo and Raul Rekow showcase their special chemistry of applying traditional Afro-Cuban percussion rhythms and blending them into today’s popular music. This program features songs from Carlos Santana’s Grammy Award-winning album Supernatural performed by an all-star band.
Patterns and grooves from each of the songs are broken down into individual lessons, and all are taught and performed in their entirety. The split screen action allows you to concentrate on any of the drum/percussion parts that you want to. In addition, when an Afro-Cuban term that may be unfamiliar to those new to the style is mentioned, the term is spelled out on-screen.
This DVD/CD package is a must for all musicians and enthusiasts. The music of Santana has no boundries and the percussion section is the “key” element to their sound. This DVD provides an in depth look at Santana’s rhythm section with great performances and easy to understand instruction of how traditional Afro-Cuban rhythms have been molded into today’s contemporary music. The additional play-along CD is an amazing tool to play-along with the guys in the band. If you’re a drum set player, a conga player, a percussionists or just like to bang on things, you can fell like you’re “IN” the band with this CD. One of the best instructional/performance DVD’s on the market.
Be advised this isn’t a “how to play Afo-cuban” rhythms video. If you enjoy the music of Santana, or something close to it, and are a percussionist, this is the DVD for you. It shows how they used afro-Cuban rhythms to influence what they played in the rock/pop music of Santana’s Supernatural album. It is almost a behind the scenes look on how and why. Besides getting a clear well thought out instructional education, they also perform.
This is a great DVD. El Negro brings up questions concerning the grooves played by Karl and Raul and they answer with great and useful responses, specifically geared toward congas and timbales. It is basically getting lessons with some of the greatest percussionists of all-time for the price of the DVD. Even if you are a beginner or pro.
