Notes

Percussion maestro and former timbal player with Los Van Van, Changuito(Jose Luis Quintana) is best known for his groundbreaking work with the legendary Cuban band. As one of the world's leading multi-percussionists, Changuito expanded the vocabulary of Latin rhythms with his seminal Songo grooves, and has taught some of the finest conga players of today including Giovanni Hidalgo. Changuito released a series of educational videos which have become a must for any up and coming percussionist playing Cuban music.

Syncopation, his debut album for MELT blends his virtuoso percussive talents and Cuban grooves with dancefloor beats and contemporary electronica. Tony Thorpe's production skills were added to the raw elements, creating a fusion of Latin rhythms with trip hop and drum'n'bass. This unique album will be equally appreciated by both world music and dance aficionados.
