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.

Hip Hop Alive
----------------------------------
Rich in spirit, wealth and culture
A colonial discourse we both experienced
Stunted in our Growth
Dismantled by their need for wealth
Yet our spirit we never undermined
Now neo-imperialism they reveal
To further fuel they urge for wealth
A movement we now own
In resistance to their surge
In our back quarters
Knowing no boundaries
Relieving us locally and globally
Hip Hop is our refuge
To redeem ourselves, fuelling our surge
A change, it will one day reveal
An affirmation of our chosen expression
This formation will be
