Afro-Spanish Guitar

Download QuickTime movie (5.2 MB)

Occidental acoustic bass with layered African percussion in the left hand and Afro steel guitar in the right-hand. The guitar eventually hands off to the African djafe flute, followed by a brief balafon and African percussion interlude near the end. Jordan's chops (and expertise) allow him to generate a totally convincing performance live, as you can see in this video. However, the Ethno Instrument also provides a very large library of Flameno/Spanish loops and phrases, which serve as a limitless foundation for the composition of this type of music. If you then add these instruments on top, either played lived or carefully sequenced, the music sounds authentic and inspiring.
