The video portion (Mac/PC) contains over 18 minutes of Rolando demonstrating playing techniques for the Bongo Bell, Cowbell and Timbale parts of each piece. Where else can an incredible series like this be found??
Each Sticks To Latin arrangement is for between 11-14 players. But they can all be performed with as few as 3 (melody, chords and bass line).
