Pernambuco, João - Sons de Carrilhões - D05

Here's a new twist on an old favorite. I recently aquired a conga and I wanted to try recording something with it. For some reason it was this piece that was crying out to me "Ric... I want some conga..." so I gave it some. I hope this is allowed on the forum...

Please enjoy!

well done :wink: ricstang :!: i enjoyed the music, but maybe you have to post a photograph of your conga :idea: , cause i don't know this kind of instrument :oops: ... it sounds great.
:bravo: for your interpretation...on this favorite music full of character :idea:

That is very nice! I like the addition of the conga. It isn't too intrusive, but adds a little more "flavor" to it all.

Wonderful playing, Ric!!! :bravo: You have a BEAUTIFUL tone and feel!!!

The addition of the conga was very tastfully done and very subtle. Perhaps a bit too subtle... to paraphrase a popular line from Saturday Night Live "I've got a fever! And the only cure is MORE CONGA!"

Thank you so much for posting this wonderful interpretation :merci:

Thanks for the comments guys. I will post a picture of my conga soon. It's similar to a djembe.
Alan... I love the quote. I hadn't thought about that sketch in a while :lol: I would have given it "more conga" but alas... I am not a conga player or a drummer of any kind. I thought I would keep it in the background so you all can't hear how awful I am!
Anyway, thanks again for taking the time to give this a listen and for the comments.

That is a great piece of music and you really capture the feel of it. I would love to learn it someday. Great idea to put the conga in!

great job Ricstang,a real swinger!!

It prompted me to d/l# ....and you know it's ryhthm and fingering is good, not at all difficult. This dance number (Maxixe??) is cheeky, but a lot easier to handle than some others.:
e.g I've struggled with the timing for the rhythms of Cuban Dance(Anon.); and another nice South American number 'EL Marabino'(Antonio Lauro) i've still got to put a lot of work into .
I really like these SA composers.


Keep up the good work

Whether there are more than one version of this piece with different rhythm?

Very nice. Always wanted to learn the congas from all my listening to Santana!
