Here is:
http://www.tomasitocruz.com/page3.html
Let us know how you get on, as I sent him an email a while ago via the 'contact' page but had no acknowledgement so far. I asked when he will complete his project/book on folkloric rhythms.
(The link showing an example of him playing is a post I put up on youtube)

You can call Freddy Lugo, he will teach you the basics and beyond, also bongo' and timbales if you like. Freddy is a humble guy and a great player. Tell him Dario sent you.

Hey Carlos, perhaps you may care to ask him for us if does indeed intend to put out a book/dvd on folcloric stuff. Cheers!

VinnieL what is your budget and how many congas are you looking for?
I have a set of 3 LP classics for sale. Spanking new and the price is even better.

Peace out Olsongo

Derbeno, I got in contact with Kevin Moore (him and Fiol did the first dvds)at Timba.com about the Tomas Cruz Folkloric dvd and he told me to contact him. I e-mailed Tomasito from the web site and got no reply either. Kevin told me that he was pretty sure he had already done the video with a different guy from some state which I cant remember right now. This must have been a while back but so far I haven't heard anything else.
