Beyond Salsa Piano is a history and anthology of the role of the piano in the Cuban rhythm section – from its first appearance to the present. In a broader sense, it’s a study of the tumbao – the art of creating music from layers of repeating rhythmic and melodic phrases. Whether these syncopated figures are called tumbaos, guajeos, montunos, riffs or vamps, this Afro-Cuban concept lies at the heart of nearly every popular music genre from salsa to rock , funk, R&B, hiphop and jazz.

While presented as a set of method books, the series doubles as a history course and record collecting guide for listeners, dancers, and players of instruments other than the piano.

Perhaps the most important goal of the series is to provide a comprehensive understanding of how tumbaos are constructed, their central role in the texture of Latin music of all eras, and the endless possibilities they provide for creative composing and arranging.

Vol. 1 features the debut of two new tangos, “Sigo Aqui,” which recants the political and social situation of the Argentineans in the last decade, as well as “Tango de Hoy Y De Ayer” written by featured singer Horacio Ravera, which highlights the story of the renowned tango interpreters responsible for bringing tango to the forefront of romantic music.


Tango Project Vol. l featuring Horacio Ravera features two new tangos, including one with lyrics penned by Mr. Ravera. The album also features three enhanced-video tracks with internationally acclaimed dancers Carlos Copelo and Alicia Monti.

Tango has been widely recognized as the most romantic of all musical styles and with this album Mr. Ravera captures the passion and excitement of the authentic tango format. Classic songs are featured such as “Cambalache,” “La Cumparsita,” “Ventarron,” “Sentimiento Gaucho,” and “ Madreselva” which were originally made famous by one of the world’s greatest tango interpreters, Carlos Gardel. “Tinta Roja” and “La Cancion de Buenos Aires” were first introduced by the prodigious Vandonion player Anibal Troilo and his orchestra.

A highlight of Tango Project is the debut of two new tangos, “Sigo Aqui,” which recants the political and social situation of the Argentineans in the last decade, as well as “Tango de Hoy Y De Ayer” written by featured singer Horacio Ravera, which highlights the story of the renowned tango interpreters responsible for bringing tango to the forefront of romantic music.

Horacio Ravera’s performances today are standing-room-only. He performs in prestigious venues from the Teatro Cervantes in Buenos Aires, Argentina, to the Richelieu Amphitheater of the Sorbonne, accompanied by the Philharmonic Orchestra in Paris, France. He has recorded eleven albums in styles including tango, salsa, bolero, rancheras, cumbia and even Italian songs. But it is his decade-long love affair with tango that he calls “the most intense experience of my life.”

Famed dancer Isadora Duncan described tango as “a voluptuous dance, as tender as a long caress, as exhilarating as making love under the afternoon sun and as dangerous as the seduction of a tropical forest.” For internationally recognized tango dancers, Carlos Copelo & Alicia Monti, this is definitely true.
