REMO DRUMS & LISTEN RECOVERY present MANDINGA a tribute to Amador Ballumbrosio

On July 31st, 3 days after the Independence day of Peru.  Rich Spirit from the Listen Recovery, got together with Master Luther Gino Gamboa and the Remo Percussion Center in North Hollywood.  To come together and pay tribute to one of the ‘Pilars’ of Afro Peruvian Folk music, ‘El Señor Amador Ballubrosio” from Chincha, Del Carmen. REMO Percussion Center open the doors to Listen Recovery and Mandinga “afro Peruvian tribute band” directed by Gino Gamboa.  The afternoon was filled with drums and enthusiastic of percussion.  People from various backgrounds, ethicities and age.

There was drums for everybody, including some of the new signature series tamba, congas and conguitas by Poncho Sanchez Collection.  Amazing abstract work on the skins.  But my favorite series was the ‘black stucco acrylic’ Congas.  Some very nice sounds coming out of this instruments.

The Remo Percussion Center is a large open area for drumming and networking with musicians and teachers of percussion.  Here are some of the flix we took during out session.  Which by the way was very fun… We played mostly afro peruvian tracks by Peru Negro and Eva Ayllon in between sessions with the band and the dance lessons by Milagros from Peru Negro.
We will continue the workshop with Mandinga and Master Luthier Gino Gamboa, who also by the way, manufactures 90% of the instruments for Eva Ayllon and Peru Negro, including his latest invention “La Batea”, a wooden bucket with a cajon whole on the botton and the wooden skin on top.  Kinda hard to explain. Got some photos… enjoy!
