9780769247793: The History of Songo [VHS]

La historia del songo is a must-have instructional video featuring Changuito and Rebeca Mauleón-Santana. By the end, you still don't quite know what songo is, and its history remains murky, but after each viewing, while you may not have learned what you set out to learn, you've nevertheless learned something else of equal or greater value. It's a priceless experience to hear Changuito chat in a relaxed setting and to watch the lovingly overdubbed rhythmic examples. There are also several full performances featuring Changuito playing with a group that includes Giovanni Hidalgo. Changuito's contributions to Cuban music can't be overestimated. He was one of the first Cuban drumset players to combine aspects of jazz and funk drumming with traditional Cuban comparsa, batá and timbal rhythms. He used the drum kit both melodically and polyphonically and was a master at spicing up slower rhythms with double-time variations. In addition to his performances and recordings, he's also been the musical padrino to generation after generation of students at Havana's Escuela Nacional de los Artes (la ENA), teaching timba giants such as Tomasito Cruz, Alexis "Pututi I" Arce and many others.
