Roots of Cuban Music
In this lesson Leonel discusses Changüi, Nengon, and Kiriba with examples of course!
Let’s talk about tres’s roots.
I’ll be demonstrating a Guantánamo changüí pattern. (Guantánamo is a province in the eastern part of the country.)
This is a changüí pattern… (demonstrates with the tres)
There’s also other patterns based on changüí, such as: quirivá and nengón. These authentic rhythms are also from the Guantánamo province.
This is a nengón pattern…(demonstrates with the tres).
“Para ti, nengón. Para ti, nengón…”
There are variations from the changüí family.
Now, this is a kiribá… (plays the tres)
