Hey bro write me an email again.

As far as Bands go...I start everyone off on "Muñequitos de Matanza" To train your ears into the music! Then go from there.

NG La Banda
Ray Barreto
Tito Puente (of course)
Semi newer stuff , a group called "Bamboleo" (Timba)
There is a real nice CD called Clave y Guaguanco with Celeste Mendoza & Changuito
Cachao (of course)
Poncho Sanchez
Manilito y su Trabuco
Issac Delgado
La Charanga Habanera

Start there.

By the way there are tons of gigs going on in Germany , tons of clinics and workshops.

for example
The Drums and Percussion festival starting Novembr 29th. It will be Myself, Jojo Mayer and many other great drummers from Europe. If you miss this then...I dont know what to tell you. My group is playing a concert there, with Master teacher, New York bassist Irio O'farrel (cuba) He is also on the staff of Drummers collective... Since the beginning.
Here is the link...

NO excuse for staying home:-)
Live to play!
