Seriously hot drumming. Garay is from Argentina, but now lives and teaches in the D.C. area. This CD of instrumentals features a wide range of percussive instruments showcased by a strong band. Tracks mostly with a Latin or Afro-Latin flair, but often explore percussion styles of other countries as well. Play it all!
