My version of the cuban rhythm : mozambique ; version I actually play on the tune Gibraltar from Freddie Hubard.
A drum study with a playback track. Buy it at The Shop.
Centerfolds is from studies I wrote for the drumset. Each study suits with different levels from biginners to advanced drummers. Buy it at The Shop.
Always from my bunch of drumset studies. Zootograph in its first part is inspired from biguine rhythm. Here are drumset, congas, wwod-block and cow-bells. Buy it at The Shop.
From Zootograph again, the biginning of the second part builds a samba rhyhm. With agogos and ganza. Buy it at The Shop.
The first part of this study, Materia Boulevard, is based on a 3/4 rhythm with strong cuban roots. Gradually it goes to a real 6/8 cuban, then comes a snare drum march to end with a 12/8 cuban rhythm. Buy it at The Shop.
This sample is the from the introduction of Ataflop (my musical tale). It's based on a djembe ostinato in 5/8 and drums and cuban percussions plays in 5/4.
Another sample from Ataflop, ITICTIC, is strongly inspired by the cuban percussions : tumbadoras, bongoes, timbales and drumset.
From Taflop, IFISH is an "hybrid" sample with percussions from different origins : pandeiro, bongoes, claves and drumset.
With IGLING I wanted to imitate the electronic sound "techno" but with only accoustic percussions.
The next samples illustrates my last exploration on the drumset. I try to mix various percussion instruments in the drumset, try to play them sae time. Sometimes I use basic roots or I create new things. This bossa-nova is played with a pandeiro (the left hand hold it, the right hand play it), the clave is played on a wood-block with my left foot and my right foot plays an usual bass drum pattern.
Same kind, a cuban pattern : the son-montuno, with accents on the ponche. The left hand plays the conga, the right hand plays the mambo cow-bell, the left foot plays the clave on a wood-block and the right foot plays a tumbao pattern on the bass drum.
Another cuban rhythm, a ternary one called bembe. Same instruments played same way.
A try in west-african style. Jansa is a wellknown rhythm. Dununs and cow-bells are played on the drumset, dununs on tom-toms (right hand) and bass drum, the originally cow-bell part is played on the high-hat with the left and. With two djembe parts added.
Trashy Songo is my hard rock version of the cuban songo, the trashy sound is made with a china and a crash cymbal stacked together.
Mandala is a song from french singer Maéso I played with. Here is the live version. With again a drumset and a conga drum played same time.
Another song from Maéso, same way to play.
A more personal approach of a song from Maéso. A re-recording with drumset, congas and timbales.
The band Hot Space Truckers with wich I lived a nice musical journey, thank you Laurent and Patrick.
