Featured Artist - Emedin Rivera

Rivera has developed his own system of playing drums and congas simultaneously mimicking the sound of three people performing. He is well known for his sound effects, many of which are hand made by him. The sound effects can be heard on some of the National Geographic television shows.

Emedin's latest CD release is called Tropical Turbulence and features a wonderful synergy of pulsating rhythms which flow from the opening bar to the closing melody. Easy on the ear and a treat for lovers of Smooth, Contemporary, Latin and Caribbean flavours. ( Promo by MC Promotion )
