Here is clip of my new project, 9 piece band SOMOS FAMILIA. On the night we were short by the band owner who does backing vocals, so we only had the one bv upfront.
This is our 2nd gig with this line up. (about 1 week ago)
Excuse poor quality vid, was shot by simple digital camera on a tripod on corner of stage, its the lead vocalists footage, Ive uploaded a copy of it onto YT.
My bro Tonio (seen in my other vids) on drums/timbal, myself on congas.
The track is called 'Somos Familia' by Swedish based timba band 'Calle Real', we give it our own feel.

Another 2 clips, first is my bro Tonio on Timbal, Dom on drumkit. (one of Tonio's students on congas, bass player Sal on bell) Saturday bbq/drinks/jam hang with some of the boys.

Here is a clip from Saturday night. A local music enthusiast put the clip together. I had a gig on congas with 13 piece project called El Orqueston de Tina, we cover music from Los Van Van, Reve, Pupy, Havana D'Primera, Sur Caribe, Dan Den, and more. In between the sets we performed a rumba to break up the night.
Here is "Maria Belen" a Yambu, we perform a version covered by Yoruba Andabo (originally played on cajon and with son clave) we felt it sounded more melodic and 'full' on congas and with rumba clave. We got one rehearsal in a few days before the show.
Im on Quinto. (Matt Smith requinto) my bro Tonio on Salidor (my Cuban hand made solid shell super tumba) and Adrian on Tres Golpes (my LP Gio conga with mule skin)
Fabian on lead vocals is actually a drummer/timbalero who stepped up last minute to cover lead vocals after our original guy had to pull out last minute.

There was also a Guaguanco done, footage aint up yet.
