Basic Bongo Techniques & Rhythm

By · July 8, 2012 · Filed in Basic, Bongos, Latin

World drumming specialist, Alan Dworsky, teaches us how to play the ‘habanera’ rhythm on the bongos. His teaching style is clear and methodical (moving from simple to more complex in a logical way that build skills). You’ll learn about the PULSE, the TONE and hear the rhythm pattern played with and without background music. Try this rhythm at home, then take it to the streets (or wherever you want to take it).
