Featuring Steve Thornton
Continuing in the tradition of The Rhythmic Construction of a Salsa Tune, this DVD explores the various rhythmic elements involved in World Music. Steve Thornton brings his years of expertise to a one on one setting with Latin Percussion, Inc. founder, Martin Cohen, as they discuss how to piece together a rhythm section for four separate World Music tunes. Steve details four different rhythms-Samba 6/8, Calypso and Inang. You will see and hear exactly how each musician's part interacts with the others. You will learn how to "color" songs with a vast array of LP products.
