Latin Drums

  • The surge in popularity in recent years of Cuban music has brought a new interest in the roots of the Latin sound
  • This music seems to know no boundaries, with influences from Africa and indigenous South America
  • It's been re-exported to Africa as one of the ingredients of soukous, and followed migrants to New York to become the roots of salsa and then an essential element of rock and pop
  • With the global economy many congas, bongos and timbales are now made (very well) in Thailand, bearing brand names such as Meinl, Latin Percussion, Toca, Pearl or Stagg
  • Smaller producers in Europe such as Schlagwerk continue to innovate with a finely crafted range of wooden cajons, yambu drums, udus and hand percussion
  • These are exciting times for the Latin percussionist
