Sample Salsa Tumbao Video

The rhythmic center of a salsa band is the conga drum part, known as “tumbao”. All the other instruments in the band have to fit inside of this pattern, much as the drumset part anchors a rock and roll band, or the ride cymbal of the drummer in a jazz band provides the swing.  In this section we show you the basic pattern, and then demonstrate how you can develop and apply it as the music becomes more complex. Where other sites stop with the basics, CongaMasterClass.com delivers a comprehensive and artistic approach to playing this popular style.
