Alafia Abure Laurent!
I hope that you are well and in an abundance of blessings!
I'm not so sure, since I haven't been back to this particualar website, but I believe that it may have been yours! There was a recording (a bit too short) on "bata and guaguanco"! If it was your creation, along with Lazaro Ros Ibaye! Where he was reciting his Moyuba in the background. Let me say that it was super cool! The way the strings were incorporated into the piece along with the percussion! Brilliant! I would have loved to have been able to acquire a longer copy of the piece! It was beautiful! Great work my friend!

Many blessings!

Tony

Hello Onile,
I made it with loops and of an audio edition software! It is the private version that I gave to this site. It is not for a commercial use.
It is an honoring which was reserved in aid of my friends and owed remained confidential before I decide to share it with the members of the site.

Wow! they are fantastic! I like the way you combined the different feels into the arrangements!
Do I hear the "Bossa Nova" clave? If so, it's in the pocket, groovin' like nobody's business:)

Really cool mixes Laurent!

Alafia Laurent!
If I may so bold as to say, at some point, you should share some of your creations with the world! It has almost a meditative effect on the mind, and I mean this in the most respectful way. I was on my computer at work when I connected to your site, and I just couldn't stop listening to it, I kept playing it over, and over again. I was actually able to complete a lot of work which I was needing to do while listening. What I'm saying is your work is very good, I like it!

You have a great talent Laurent! I wish you many triumphs!

Respectfully,
Onile

Hey folks, I don't like to discredit people, but I live in Houston where this Dr. Zaragemca lives, and all I know is that he runs a drum circle at some cafes. Now, I have been playing here since 1992, in many salsa bands AND, have a group that plays guiros. There are three cubans in the group and none of them know Zaragemca. In addition ( as far as I know) he does not play with the established salsa bands. in addition, I have been to tambors with Puntilla, Totico and a group from LA here in houston , and as far as I know he was not present or connected to any of those peope, which ( as we know the community of cuban "master percussionists" is quite small) he would almost certainly would be . I've been looking for bata instructors here for some time, as I have studied in Cuba (cost prohibited) and with other masters such as Michael Spiro and Skip Brinquito Williams. He may most certainly be from havana, but bestowing upon one's self the title of master percussionist is a bit presumptuous.

As far as I know there are definitely moorish influences in Rumba, particularly the vocal tonal qualities, and in the use of the highest pitched drum as the lead drum. As we know in most african music, even afro-cuban music, the large drum is the lead ( bata, bembe, arara, iyesa).

Oh yeah, everytime Skip would come to Houston me and my boys, him, Aby and sometimes Pepe would hang out. Crazy guy. This was like in 94, long time ago, but man I sure learned alot from that homeboy! Galad to hear he made ocha, I knew he had moved to Miami for a while and was playing down there with el Negro.
