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.
