Afrocuban/latin percussion in Los Angeles

Postby dxport65 » Sun Sep 17, 2023 6:24 pm

I am looking for afrocuban Rumbas, latin percussion groups, or instructors in the LA area. I went to check out Leimert park on the first Saturday of the month a couple of times, but I don't think the rubmas are happening anymore. Motherland used to have conga instructors, but they have disappeared as well.

Hi dxport65,

Joaquin Pozo gives classes over the internet. He is a Cuban master conga player and rumbero based in NYC, a really outstanding conga player with the most melodic soloing style I have heard. Here are a few songs he has written and recorded, playing congas.


Rumba Columbia

Daysi Baila Mozambique ... c&index=17

Envidia Por Dentro ... c&index=22

Answer me here, PM me or contact me at gfj7 "at" if you are interested, I can put you in touch with him.

There used to be Rincon Rumba. You might want to try and track and down and see if they are still happening.
