DRUM MIDI LATIN RHYTHMS
A LATIN PATTERN PALETTE.
A rhythmic force of nature featuring all the percussive colors of Latin and Cuban music.
Salsa, songo, merengue, cha-cha-cha, mambo, guaguanco, bomba, caballo, timba – the list of styles that commonly get filed under ‘Latin’ can be made seemingly endless. One thing is central and infinitely vivid regardless of how it’s labeled, though: rhythm. Latin music is arguably the most percussion-driven and multi-faceted style there is in terms of groove.
This collection of MIDI was designed to give you a broad-stroke overview of the tremendous wealth in rhythms and patterns that can be traced back to traditional Latin music. Expect a veritable palette of percussive colors, all expertly performed by Mauricio Herrera – a Cuban native and Grammy Award-nominated drummer with more than 25 years’ worth of experience behind the kit.
Welcome to a collection of MIDI that fuses the rhythmic culture, tradition and heritage of Latin America and Cuba. Combine these grooves with percussion and you’ll have nothing less than a force of nature.
