Authentic Percussion Ensembles

Authentic Afro-Latin percussion ensembles, powerful tribal rhythms, expressive fills and intricate solo percussion performances…

Afro-Latin percussion Volume 2 offers an exciting collection of acoustic percussion loops, drum hits and mixed percussive ensembles, perfect for adding excitement and energy to pre-programmed drum tracks or layering with one-shot drums to create unique and organic percussion grooves.

Whilst Volume 1 focused on ‘light’ percussion instruments, Volume 2 focuses on ‘drum heavy’ Afro- Caribbean and Latin American percussion instruments including; multiple congas, quinto and tumba drums, djembe, bongos, cajon, mini-timbales and timbales.

The library explores a wealth of different playing styles and rhythms which have been expertly played by the late world-class percussionist Ed Uribe.

The result is a unique and highly useable collection of full-bodied Afro -Latin percussion loops/samples which suit a wide range of musical styles; from House music and electronic genres, to film scores…

All loops and samples have been recorded with high-end microphones and pre-amps, with sound sources being mixed to perfection to achieve finalized high-quality stereo loops, hits and performances.
