For percussionists looking to master the Afro-Cuban sound but unsure about how best to learn the style, drummer, Berklee professor, and lifelong Latin music scholar Ricardo Monzón offers a detailed lesson in both how to play, and how to practice popular Latin rhythms. A Guatemalan native whose work with vocalist Aretha Franklin and various classical ensembles including the New Life Symphony Orchestra and Orquesta Sinfonica de Guatemala has earned him a reputation as an authority on the subject of Latin beats, conga and timbale master Monzón parlays his rich performing experience into a valuable interactive lesson in the art of the Afro-Cuban sound.
