Bill Matthews is the best-selling author of THE NEW CONGA JOY instruction book, CD, video and DVD series, as well as the recently released DRUM STORIES. THE NEW CONGA JOY is widely considered to be the bible on the subject of African and Afro-Cuban hand drum rhythms. Matthews founded his world music center, Fremont Drum, in 1994 featuring instructional drumming classes, drum and dance performances, African music events, a monthly art-andpmusic show, and music-themed eco-travel adventures to Africa and other destinations such as Bali. For those drum lovers who can't experience Fremont Drum in person, The NEW CONGA JOY provides an unmatched initiation into the magic of the drum.Review:
