Album Notes
FIESTA PERCUSIVA is a celebration of percussion in a variety of styles from the Caribbean and South America. Led and produced by drummer/percussionist, Victor Rendón, the percussive pieces explore the cultures of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Peru, Mexico, and other Latino influences.

High percussive, mostly Afro-Caribbean, fueled up release that is smoking hot! This salsa-jazz-folkloric project features a ton of percussionists. In addition to Victor Rendón there's Anibal "Tito" Rivera, Louis Bauzo, Tom Mattioli, Henry Brun, Guillermo "Memo" Acevedo, Ruben Rosa, Diego Lopez, Ramon Diaz and many others. Pick this up and enjoy!

Legend tells of a fan who followed Charlie Parker from gig to gig in New York. Whenever his hero got ready to solo, the fan would activate a tape recorder he had set up near the stage. When the solo ended the tape was shut off, even as Dizzy Gillespie took his turn. Maybe there are equally devoted fans out there who would love to savor Latin percussion stripped as far down to the basics as possible, without any horn sections. If so, Fiesta Percusiva was made for you. When the tune is apparent, it’s presented almost as a component o the rhythm instruments: Andrea Brachfeld’s flute on “Afro Blue” sounds like an overtone of her line being doubled on marimba. Other tracks are equally or more bewitching without a single tonal note; on “Juego de Quijadas” caracoles, quijadas (a donkey jawbone), rain sticks, and other percussion evoke the sounds of nature itself, with help from some sampled cricket noises – all of this assuming that nature has a feeling for 6/8. With or without a melody, this stuff is magic.
