BS Piano v12 – Pupy and Van Van in the 1990s – now live! – Soliciting help from readers on next book
I’m now working full time on BS Bass v4, The History of Timba – 1989 to 2001.
The bass tumbaos are the easy part, but now we have to consider that the bass – for the first time in the history of Latin popular music – will be expected to do something besides play bass tumbaos.
In fact, the defining quality of a timba gear – be is presión/pedal, masacote or bomba – is the absence of a bass tumbao.
Where I would very much appreciating help is on the history aspect of this era. I need memories, anecdotes, photos, links – anything to do with the music of Cuba from NG La Banda in 1989 to January of 2001.
