The Austrian live and session percussionist Herwig Stieger, who has worked as an endorser for Meinl Percussion and Mehmet Istanbul - cymbals, releases this new book after the successful publication of The Real Book Conga (AMA Verlag, incl. CD with play along tracks) for percussion ensembles.
Ethno Percussion Vol. 1 includes ten ensemble pieces ranked easy to intermediate for African, Latin and Modern Grooves, which developed from his years-long engagement with non-European music and his numerous study trips to Turkey (Orient percussion), Cuba (Havana and Santiago de Cuba, Latin Percussion) and West Africa (Benin and Burkina Faso, African percussion). Stiegers compositions - ranked in difficulty from easy to moderate - are based on non-European music styles which the author has come in contact with over the years.
The notation of the instruments are explained at the beginning and summarized in a full score at the end of each chapter. A detailed introduction to the listed instruments (Conga / Tumba, Surdo, Maracas, Cowbell, claves, guiro, Cajongas, djembe, Sangban / Doundoun, Kenkeni, Tambora), their techniques and helpful hints for the performance are given to make sure that every percussion ensemble will easily be able to evoke that Latin-American spirit in every concert.
