I believe it's important to keep you all informed about what is going on with our MEINL Percussion artists, so today I wanted to bring your attention to a new MEINL Artist, Carlos Yamasaki who is on tour with one of my favorite singers from Peru Eva Ayllon. With more than 20 recordings and more than 3 decades of musical career, Eva is one of the most important singer in Latin America today.
Eva's style is mainly Afro-Peruvian fusion and her show is full of percussion, even she plays a little bit of Cajita and Cajon. Along with Carlos, who plays drums and percussion there are two other percussionists, so this is a show you don't want to miss.
Carlos brings a new and young flavor to Eva's band that mixed with the traditional Afro-Peruvian rhythms creates a unique blend of old and new or Africa and America.
I'm very happy to have Carlos as part of the team so if you have the chance check out Eva in one of the following concerts, you won't regret it.
