In this DVD, Nan Mercader reveals the secrets of flamenco percussion, in a structured manner that is easy to understand and includes over sixty exercises. It is an essential tool to get started in the most characteristic form of flamenco percussion, and includes an analysis of different palos (flamenco forms).
The DVD includes a teaching meathod for the cajón (box-drum), with exercises to learn the technique and the rhythmic patterns for bulerías, tangos, tanguillos and rumba, and a teaching method for the tinaja (a percussion instrument, essentially an earthenware jug), which includes exercise and rhythms. For both instruments, the exercises have been conceived for practicing using a metronome. The palos that are included feature guitar playing and singing.
The DVD includes a final performance involving Carles Benavent, Jorge Pardo, Vicky Romero and Nan Mercader.
