Afro-Cuban, baby!

Boyfriend is lying in bed watching this video. I just watched a few minutes with him and said, "These rhythms sound so complicated, but they're not." (Ignacio first plays the groove slowly and then plays it at normal speed with other musicians accompanying him.) Boyfriend agreed that that's the beauty of them--they sound like really complicated rhythms when played layer upon layer, but broken down they're actually quite simple. I dare any of you to sit still while listening to Afro-Cuban drumming--it's HOT! Best of all, I've got a man in my house who can play the shit out of this stuff. Now THAT'S hot! :)

The DVD/CD is what I sent to Erika for Gifty, Round 1. Posted by Hello
