Hosted by Bobby Sanabria, this how-to video will show anyone the basics for properly mastering the seductive rhythms of the conga, whether as a focal point unto itself or for subtle backing percussion as part of a larger band. Techniques covered include proper holding and positioning of the drum, hand motions, and the importance of tumbaos, cierres, and the clave. This video is presented in both Spanish and English.
