SE LLAMA SABROSO (They Call it Tasty) by Zona Franka (a zona franca is a duty-free port) is an exciting introduction of a style called "Changüí con flow", a fusion of traditional rural changüí with rap and other urban Cuban music. As the name of the group implies, various musical styles from around the Americas are also featured. The songs are Cuban classics re-imagined in fresh, clever and innovative new arrangements that far differ from the original versions.
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.

Tropical music's rising star -singer, composer, arranger & multi-instrumentalist Braily Ramos!

Born in Santa Clara, Cuba in 1976, singer, composer, arranger and multi instrumentalist Braily Ramos began his musical education at 11 years old at the Arts Vocational School. Majoring on the trombone, after completing four (4) years at the National School for the Arts (Music University of Cuba) he proceeds to a higher level at the ISA (Instituto Superior de Arte - Universidad de Musica de Ciudad Habana). During his third year there he is presented with the opportunity to tour with the most popular band in Cuba at the time Manolín "El Médico de la Salsa". In 1998 he performs with El Médico in Miami and decides to make the city his new home. Together with his also multi-talented brother, Bayron Ramos, Braily has become the 'corista' and trombonist of choice for recordings, live shows and special tv & film performances in the area -most notably with Celia Cruz, Willy Chirino, Albita, Eddie Santiago, Tito Nieves, Ismael Miranda, Huey Dunbar, Carlos Manuel, Alejandro Sanz, Gloria Estefan, La India, Lucrecia and Frankie Negrón. Braily is also a founding member of the Miami super-group Cuban Timba All-Stars. Well known today as star trombonists, the Ramos brothers also prove they are a well-rounded musical powerhouse -singing, composing, recording, playing multiple instruments- on their debut release DISCO DURO.

Add BRAILY's music to your film or TV show:
Already a world-class trombonist, having worked with Celia Cruz, Albita, Cachao, Alejandro Sanz, Manolín "El Médico", CTA (Cuban Timba All-Stars), Gloria Estefan, Willy Chirino, and countless others, “Disco Duro” finds Braily Ramos debuting his musical prowess as a singer and songwriter.

Featuring an all-star cast of Miami's top players, “Disco Duro” is a salsa record at its core, with swinging horn and mambos a-plenty. But—there are also a few surprises in store. Like power-pop ballad "Perdido En Mi Dolor," with its sticky bridge and sweet chorus provided by singer Olga Lidia; or, "Mírala Como Se Marea"— tailor made for the climax of the evening, the trombones alone call to those looking for a hot grinding dance floor.
