Pilón for A New Son
Pilón reveals a Cuban pattern, traditionally played on Timbales, but in this case on Jr. Congas & Congas (with gated reverberation and flanger effect). The rhythm of Pilón is based on the motions of pounding sugar cane.
A new son reveals a blessing, traditionally played on your knee, but in this case the one I have in mind may be too big! (>12 lbs with cheeks to the neck!).
Thanks to Michael de Miranda for explaining Pilón to me.
Thanks to 2R for sharing the news with me… congrats!
