Fun Videos #2!

And, here are a few more recent videos, hope you all enjoy them!!

First of all, my first-ever video lesson on drumset! On it I am talking a bit about my concept and ideas for playing the Ijexá groove, a Afro-Brazilian rhythm which you may also have heard being called Afoxé. Some coordination is addressed, as well as ways to orchestrate around the kit and create original grooves and solos based on this rhythm. Check it out, share it, enjoy it! Many thanks to Soultone Cymbals for their support and their A-M-A-Z-I-N-G instruments!!!

This next one is a groove solo, based on the Ijexá / Afoxé groove. Check out the lesson above first for the basic idea, and then see the solo for some applications!

Lastly, this is from Sergio Galvão's show at the Blue Note NYC in early March 2014.... we are playing the classic Brazilian song "Vou Deitar e Rolar...".

I am a drummer - percussionist - composer - artist based in New York City, NY. Please visit my website: http://www.mzdrums.com
