Cuban Drummer/Composer Lays It Down in a CME Session
Cuban composer and drummer, Yissy Garcia, is one of the most prominent artists coming out of Cuba! We had the great fortune to have her in the Chicago Drum Exchange for a CME Session. She's got a lot of of groove in her sticks, and a wildly creative impulse! She breaks rules and walks lines creating a fusion between tradition and the avant-garde, her playing blurs boundaries of Latin jazz,, funk, and Afro-Cuban music. Take a listen to her wild fusion grooves
Before we had the pleasure of seeing Yissy in person here at the shop we were all mesmerized by the conceptual music video for the tune "Mr. Miller" directed by Héctor David Rosales. The power of the ALL WHITE set and instruments throughout the tune is visually stunning and then, well, watch it for yourself we don't want to spoil it for you!
