Johnny Conga lets his hands do the talking

Performer/Teacher/Radio DJ, Johnny Conga was my very first teacher way back in '72. He has travelled the world several times playing with notables such as Gloria Gaynor and Sergio Mendes to name just two. Now residing in Seattle, JC continues to perform with several local groups. He has developed a unique teaching concept where the student stays with him for a week and works on a variety of exercises, techniques and rhythms...a boot camp for congas so to speak. His contact information is available on this blog. This video will give you a chance to see what a capable percussionist he truly is. El Ruso
