- and much more!


In this DVD, conguero Michael Pluznick shows the fundamentals of how to play traditional and original variations of many of the most popular Afro-Cuban rhythms and rhythm arrangements - old school and contemporary, including the Rumba Family: Yambu, Guaguanco and Rumba Colombia, as well as Bembe 6/8, Mozambique, Guarapachanguerro and Songo.

Michael offers comprehensive instruction for each and every part of a rhythm, including bells and palitos. You will also find group ensemble demonstrations and slow-motion sequences for hard-to-learn parts.

Michael Pluznick is a lifelong devotee of world music and percussion. While living in Cuba in 1985 and 1995 he studied from many of the great Cuban masters to add authentic first hand experience to his long term studies in the USA. With 35 years of performing, recording and teaching experience, Michael shares his insight and enthusiasm with these tried and true teaching methods.

"I would like to thank my many friends and teachers who have
helped me along the way. Without their endless support
and inspiration this DVD would not be possible."

---Michael Pluznick
