About congahead

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

I began this website in order to share my good fortune in knowing many of the world’s finest percussionists and instrumentalists.
