Mind-blowing

Creator of the mind-blowing "Third Hand" technique, Latin Jazz percussionist Enildo Rasúa is an innovator extraordinaire who’s been performing globally for three decades. Anyone who’s seen him play is an instant fan - a recent clip of Rasúa playing garnered 20,000 FaceBook views in its first week. Grammy award-winning percussionist Alex Acuna (Weather Report, Elvis Presley, Diana Ross, Chick Corea, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson) calls Rasúa "an incredible gift of music", and (...) he is an innovator (...) I do not hesitate to highlight the superior qualities of Enildo as a musician (...)

 

Rasúa’s style and sound are unique. Classically trained, he’s a powerhouse of Afro-Cuban soul and Latin groove and yet he has the exquisite, light touch of a classical technician. Growing up in Eastern Cuba to a family of mixed African and Spanish heritage, Rasúa’s childhood was infused with the beats that form modern Salsa music and American soul, blues and rock that flowed on the airwaves. An avid collaborator, Rasúa is a master of Cuban musical traditions, including Son Cubano, Changüí, Salsa, Rumba, Tumba Francesa and Abakuá.
