Variations on Cha-Cha-Chá – 5102 – E

12 November, 2017 682 38 No Comments


Here you have Horacio’s variation on the pattern of Cha-Cha-Chá, with a combination where he uses the Left foot with cowbell and Hihat, and very interesting orchestrations in the drum kit.



There are many, many different ways to play the Cha-Cha-Chá, but again it is important to know the elements that form this style. For example in the Cha-Cha-Chá it was the rhythm that gave birth to Timbales, to the Danzón itself. So the percussion section of the Danzón orchestra is usually a Timbale player, a Güiro player, a Clave player, and one Conga. We have to know these sounds and play with them…So let me play you a different kind of Cha-Cha, using, for example, the foot bell and stuff like that.
