The Flute in Cuban Popular Music
This book dedicated to the flute in popular Cuban music is a method in which I have tried to include all the technical and stylistical aspects that are of interest to the musician who wishes to become acquainted with the world of Latin music. On the one hand, the book presents the most important genres of our music where the flute plays an outstanding role as a solo instrument; on the other hand, it introduces the most essential characteristics of the individual genres the flutist should be familiar with when performing Cuban music. This method mainly focusses on technical aspects comprising the knowledge of the clave, articulations, embellishments and the like, presented along with exercises, examples and the analysis of flute solos.
