Another Great One Has Departed
Wow. 2011 has barely begun and another of our beloved Elders has gone to his Great Reward. The legendary Afro-Cuban percussionist Eugenio Arango (better known as Totico) has passed away in New York. He was the teacher of one of my own conga teachers, and we were actually distant cousins - long story for another time.
In his honor, we will feature his music this week during classes. VIVA TOTICO!
