Rumba Columbia

Uploaded .

230

Rumba Columbia is a traditional Cuban pattern in 6: the “go-to” pattern for 12/8 - if you have only heard one Afro-Cuban rhythm in 12/8, this is probably it. As an energetic Afro-Cuban dance, Rumba was often suppressed and restricted because it was viewed as dangerous and lewd. But it’s ok. You are listening to this pattern over the internet and nobody is watching. Get as lewd as you want. But for heaven’s sake, dance!

12/8 - this was improvised so I don’t know the bpm.

they are good, no doubt about it. but what comes first of all, before playing in time, is the natural groove of a beat. and you are without a doubt getting really good at this! :)

@ Alister: Ha! I have a cuica - and I'm always looking for an excuse to play it - but I usually associate it with Brazilian carnival / samba music. But now that you have mentioned it, I'm going to fire that up in the near future. And thank you, but Pedro & Mauricio are legend, and light years ahead the stuff I produce.
