Great performance clear conversation

Comments:

It's one thirty minute duet and one ten minute duet. In-between is a cute moment where they work changuitos basic exercise for developing the "secret hand" a style of double on conga. You can tell that it's more than just a performance for these two it's a beautiful conversation between the original innovator and his pupil who became, in my opinion, the greatest to touch the instrument. I have watched it six times and it's clear to me now that many of the sections are based on ideas that assume originated with Changuitos exercises which Giovanni really fleshed out. So it actually is highly educational without needing much explanation. I could listen to it every morning the duets are beautiful. It's really quite a beautiful performance and very special for a conga player. The best DVD for the instrument I've seen a must own must study.
