Congas Full Circle satisfies a missing link in percussion literature. This is the first book for congas and hand drumming that breaks down the patterns of various styles (almost 50!) into small sections that can be digested easier. Although there are many high quality books for hand drummers, the books merely notate the patterns without teaching the reader how to play the rhythms. Congas Full Circle will fill that void. The book includes many exercises to teach the reader how to play rudiments on congas while improving your quality of sound. There are also examples of styles for djembe, batá, bongos, and cajones with music spanning from early African patterns to modern day Salsa and Timba. With almost 400 pages, this is the most comprehensive book on congas available.
