Rhythm patterns covered on this Cajon Method - LATINO DVD: Bolero, Cha Cha Cha, Songo, Afro, Guaguanco, Mrengu, Reggae, Samba and Reggaeton.
Daniy Moreno proposes the cajon as an alternative and complement of the drum kit, not as a substitute but an alternative for performances in small venues where using the drums becomes a problem of room. One can also take advantage of the similar low-high sound that the cajon shares with the drum and the bass drum.
The method consists in a DVD + book format structured in three parts:
1 - Cajon Technique and exercises
2 - Study of the patterns and variations of styles from Bolero, Cha Cha Cha, Songo, Afro, Guaguanco, Mrengu, Reggae, Samba and Reggaeton
3 - Musical themes mixing all patterns studied
In each part there are multiple video and audio options, showing in detail all percussion instruments used and the choice of audio depending on the instrument you want to follow, or the combination of them all.
The book includes all the exercises and explanations on the DVD contents. Audio is in: Espanol, English, Francais, German, Japanese and Italiano.
