Latin Music Combo

Learn to play Latin music with the Latin Combo!

This combo is intended for anyone interested in learning to play Latin music in depth by mastering the different styles and eras within the same genre. We will work on the different styles that make up this genre, such as Cuban son, salsa, timba and Latin jazz. As well as the different emblematic rhythms of these styles, for example guaracha, danzón, bolero, cha-cha-cha and guaguanco. In addition, groups will work on improvisation through open sections for solos within the same arrangements.


Combo Latin Music


Àlex Ventura

He studied jazz and modern music at the CDMBR (Zeleste) and at the Taller de Músics, and recently obtained the superior degree in jazz and modern music from the ESMUC. He studied drums with Quim Soler, Marc Miralta and Aldo Cabiglia. Parallel to his academic studies, in 1993 he travelled to Cuba to deepen his knowledge of Afro-Cuban music, studying with different local percussionists. That same year he joined the stable band that accompanied the Cuban singer Lucrecia for a period of 10 years. It is worth mentioning his collaborations with Paquito d’Rivera, Patato Valdés and Chavela Vargas.

He has played with musicians such as: Lucrecia, Paquito d’Rivera, José “Patato” Valdés, Miguel “Anga” Diaz, Jordi Bonell, Joan Monne, Vicens Solsona, Perico Sambeat, Victor d’Diego, Mathew Simon, among others.

Who it is for

The aim of forming a combo is to learn to play in a group, to know what role each member plays and to acquire a musical repertoire, as well as knowing how to listen to other instruments at the same time as to your own.

The Latin Music Combo is aimed at music students and musicians with a certain level of interest in Latin music. Especially in Puerto Rican salsa, timba, Latin jazz, guaracha, bolero, cha-cha-cha, cumbia, bomba and guaguanco.
