This is the first in a series of sessions we recorded at Red Bull Studios NYC.

Afro Cuban percussion provides some of the most emotive and dynamic sounds known. The way intricate grooves and upbeat dance rhythms meld and blend through its signature polyrhythmic drumming will get anyone on the dancefloor. Renowned Afro Cuban percussionist Elizabeth Pupo Walker shared her talents, history, and passions for the genre in crafting this pack. Dig into congas, bongos, cahon, and other Afro Cuban percussion one-shots and loops.

Pupo Walker studied in Havana, Cuba at Conjunto Folklorico Nacional de Cuba and in Matanzas, Cuba with the world-renown percussion ensemble Los Munequitos de Matanzas. She has sought out specific instructors throughout her career, delving into the drumming dialects of Brazilian Batucada and Carribean rhythms of the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and more.
