Remembering Toots Thielmans, one of the greatest musicians of all times. Born April 29 1922, died August 22 2016.

One of the musicians that impressed me the most was Toots Thielmans who I had the occasion to meet several times.  I was especially impressed when he sat in at the Jazz Cafe in Brussels, Belgium with the Latin Percussion Jazz Ensemble, a group I put on tour between 1979 and 1980 to spread the word of my percussion brand, LP.

Herencia de Timbiquí perform at Congahead Studio

 Colombian band Herencia de Timbiquí stopped by our studio while on their U.S. tour to perform Sabrás. This is the first time we had the Marimba de Chonta in our studio.  Herencia de Timbiquí a mesmerizing band from the Pacific coast of Colombia, enjoy!

Stay in the loop for the best of Latin, Jazz, & World Music!!
