New Album from Verny Varela y La Tropa - La Rumba No Se Acaba - Salsa Dura de Colombia
Música tropical de Cuba y Francia - Rubén Paz y Chéverefusión
LA TIMBA LA TRAIGO YO - Nuevo Disco de Robert Armas y los Conquistadores de la Salsa
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.

Después de muchos años, y con mucho anhelo y anticipación, le dedico esta producción a mis padres Victoria Pérez Gelabert y Mario Cepeda Oliva. No creo que hubiese sido posible materializarlo sin el respaldo de mi familia y la ayuda de varias personas muy especiales en mi vida. Entre ellos.... Mi esposo Gonzalo Chomat, gracias por tu amor a este disco, tus consejos y tu fuerza. Esteban Adame por tu colaboración y tus ideas. Cada uno de los músicos que aportaron su talento y su tiempo, son increíbles! Alberto López, Denis Jirón y la Orquesta Rumbankete, Michael Lázarus por todo su apoyo. A todos...GRACIAS!
