Geez,

After that massive gallery of images, my paltry few snaps by comparison, leave me limp with "pictorial dysfunction".

Great stuff Marcelo!
What was the circumstance in the dark picture about midway down, where the guy was playing an Iya next to you?
I like it when styles and different instruments taken from their original context are mixed.

You guys obviously like to have fun!! Much respect!!!!

Wow Marcelo, those guiros, I bet they sound as good as they look, they are "FAT", no pun intended, you have a great talent. Maybe one day you can offer to sell some to some of the members. Just out of curiosity, have you always lived in Australia? How is the general scene in Austalia in reguards to Latin Music? is there a lot of it, how about Latin Musical groups?

hey guys, thanks for the comments! :) I will update and add some more pics as I go along..

Windy, the dark pic with me on quinto and Carlos on Iya, was a band I used to play with, it was in a section of a track we done, where bass, synths, guitar would play an almost drum n bass like groove, whilst the drummer played a 6x8 groove felt in 4 but real up tempo, Carlos would play Iya parts with myself throwing in quinto riffs upfront (carlos was also the singer/rapper/mc) while another percussionist played Itotele & Okonkolo parts on congas. Man, that was a heavy tune!

Yo sup KK, yeh man always lived here, arrived when I was 2. There is a strong salsa/timba/folklorik scene here. Plenty of bands etc. I mean it aint NYC but theres stuff going on Tues nights, Thurs nights through to Sun nights. Keeps me busy enough. The guiros are awesome bro! The Guiro player from Los Van Van loved them! He used one of mine for a few tracks during their tour here.
Hope you enjoyed the video clips also! :)

Heres a short clip from Sunday nights gig, friend of mine got married.
I jumped off congas to let my bro Tonio (Jose) take a solo, (Jose plays timbal in my band) Dom jumped up onto timbal to fill in during this track, I shot it with my crappy mobile phone camera, sorry for bad image quality.

Here is a clip from a gig in March.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOQyydeVyqg

Jose (Tonio) takes a Timbales solo. (Same Jose/Tonio in the video a few posts up who takes a conga solo) Myself on Congas, horn section is Bob, Marcus & Rob, Peter Guarino on Baby Bass, Sarmen on Piano, Julio "Candela" on Bongo, Robert on backing vox & Gonzalo Porta lead Vocalist. Footage from SALSOTECA / LATINO WHITE PARTY 2009 @ HOME NIGHTCLUB, SYDNEY AUSTRALIA. (March 2009)
Apologies for the low quality footage, was taken with low megapixel digital camera and the sound was, to put it nicely, not the best we've had. Hope you enjoy it. :)

Marcelo,

Your gig shots/videos are always the best treat for us guys who can only dream of playing venues with an on-stage posse like you play in. We're all green :mrgreen: with envy, but so happy to see a fine conguero like you continually a part of such a hot scene.
