Cohen 70s

My name is Martin Cohen and my passion for music has fueled much of my life’s work. Since the 1950’s, I have been photographing and recording the world’s most creative and exciting musicians.

After a brief hiatus, I have begun adding content to my website while keeping available 11 years of priceless material that made congahead.com the bible to percussion and Latin/African/Jazz enthusiasts the world over.  The original material is contained in Classic Congahead.  The new material, The New Congahead.

Martin CohenI will continue to bring to my viewers stories, photos, audio and video of musical events I am privileged to attend or host.

I will continue to add to my Classic Shots section providing a sneak preview of images that will eventually become the contents of a series of books of my experiences in building LP, the largest percussion company in the world.
