Arriving in Cuba the journey started in Havana. Exploring the streets of the capital city we quickly realised that there is music everywhere - which is still performed by real musicians. No wonder that the majority of recordings have been traditional latin rhythms and various percussion instruments. Through the course of the journey we tried to capture as many new sounds as possible to modulate new aspiring samples. “Vol. 5: The Cuban Drum Kit” features recordings of traditional quartets as well as solo percussionists. All samples have been recorded with the Zoom h4n mobile recorder. To find out more about the production process of “The Cuban Drum Kit” read more on my blog. Tracking For Tracks: Cuban Drum Kit
