Latin Rhythm Clinic Workshop with John Santos
Five-time Grammy nominated percussionist/composer/producer/bandleader and San Francisco native, John Santos is one of the top percussionists in the field and has been teaching locally and internationally since the 1970s. Along with Guillermo Guillen, he founded the first Latin Music Ensembles at the Mission Cultural Center beginning in 1977 under the auspices of the California Arts Council. John returns to the MCCLA with this clinic/demonstration where he will share the nuts, bolts, and general Latin rhythmic concepts for congas, timbales, bongos, cajon, chekere, guiro and maracas. Q&A will be held throughout the workshop.
