AW: Re: Re: Rhythm Intensive and Rhythmic Programming (funky african root styles)

Certaibly back american styles like funk have that
but check out also the old raw dancing "changüi" style in cuba which dates back to the 1800s

The "guayo" or scraper is always a bit behind the beat ,thats what makes it so funky

I also love how the tres guitar starts on the "3 and" giving u an ilusion of starting on the one
And the percusion always comes with a fill on the "2 and"
Is great that it still exists


Heres a documentary of it

You guys are amazing! I have a small request, Can Rick sometime at his
leisure pick up one (or two) of his weird ethnic drum things, and drag
them across the yard to Bills garage, just about the same time as Bill
starts one of his slippy slidey loopy solos?

a vid with both bro's... Nice...

That can happen, though Bill and I have really busy schedules lately and are not playing
together very much these days.  We're just doing really different things, musically these
days but  I'm sure it will happen in the future.

In the meantime,  go here to see the two of us improvising in a live looping duo situation
at a gig where we opened for Argentina's amazing Juana Molina.

These are full song clips from Bill project, New Delta  where we play music that is originally
inspired by musics from the Nile ,  Mississippi ,  Ganges and Yangtze Deltas.


thanks for the request,  Mark
