Armando Peraza, Karl Perazzo and Raul Rekow
Visit the LP Studio

Armando Peraza, Karl Perazzo and Raul RekowVisit the LP StudioRecently, three Santana veterans, Armando Peraza, Raul Rekow, and Karl Perazzo, conducted the first of three scheduled LP sponsored clinics at O. DiBella Music in Bergenfield, NJ. Beforehand, they were welcomed into the LP studio for a photo and recording session.

This was octogenarian, Armando Peraza’s, first visit to LP in fifteen years. The youthfulness and enthusiasm with which he performed were an inspiration to everyone in attendance. I have known all three gentlemen for many years, and I am proud, as is everyone at LP, of our association with such fine musicians. Through them and their affiliation with Santana, our instruments have reached a wide and varied audience.

In January 2003, LP unveiled the new LP Accents Armando Peraza Signature Series Congas and Bongos as a tribute to this percussion icon. His eighteen
years with Santana, as well as his groundbreaking work with Charlie "Bird"
Parker, George Shearing, and Cal Tjader certainly make Armando the perfect
namesake of a top-of-the-line series of congas and bongos.

Karl and Raul teamed up with LP to create a reasonably priced, quality line of congas, bongos, and timbales called "The Karl Perazzo & Raul Rekow Matador Line". The Raul Rekow congas are cloaked in Raul's signature green glitter and have the quality features that percussionists have come to expect from LP's Matador Series.
