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.

SINTESIS Volume II takes the original idea of Volume I -a sort-of progressive rock adaptation of Santería chants- to the next level with improved musical sophistication and execution. New band member Esteban Puebla adds many of the new arrangements with style.

English: During the month of March 2003 the musical group SINTESIS has been working on its most recent production: the last Volume of ANCESTROS TRILOGY, which will come out to the market under the label Unicornio-Abdala in a deluxe collection. This Trilogy is the compilation of the work carried out by SINTESIS with Afro-Cuban songs of yoruba origin, in magnificent fusion with the creative procedures of jazz, rock and international pop music.

Volume I gathers the topics of "Ancestros", recorded in 1989 by the musicians that formed the group then: Carlos Alfonso, Ele Valdés, Lucía Huergo, Fidel García, José Bustillo and Frank Padilla, with arrangements of Carlos Alfonso and Lucía Huergo, and having Maestro Lázaro Ross as a special guest.

Volume II includes all the themes from the disk "Orishas", recorded in 1997 by the group that formed Carlos Alfonso, Ele Valdés, Fidel García, Esteban Puebla, Equis Alfonso, Raúl Pineda and Víctor Navarrete, having special performances of Luis Conte, Kevin Ricard, Michito Sánchez, Cecilia Noel, Carlitos del Puerto and the raper Charlie 2Ner. The arrangements were made by Carlos Alfonso, Esteban Puebla and Equis Alfonso.

Among the 13 themes of Volume III are some from the disk "Ancestros II" which were recorded with William Martínez, Fidel García and Raúl Pineda in 1993, as well as versions of other themes made with new arrangements. These pieces have been especially recorded for this deluxe edition by the present group, integrated by Carlos Alfonso, Ele Valdés, Esteban Puebla, Equis Alfonso, Oney Cumbá, Yoandy Hernández, Sergio Cardoso, and the young vocalists Madonna Alfonso and Diana J. Fuentes.
