Keyfax Releases Colombian Beats
Colombian Beats comprises Atlantic & Pacific coastal rhythms including Puya and the Mapale that are used in traditional Colombian carnival, and modern beats used by the likes of Grupo Niche, Fruko y sus Tesos, and Orquesta Guayacan.
Recorded live in Bogota by producer Rubio and percussionist Andres Rodriguez, the beats cover a wide range of styles, from Cumbia, Salsa, Mapale, and Colombia's national dance, Bambuca, to more unusual beats such as Contradanza, and Pasillo.
Offered as a series of Standard MIDI Files (.MIDs), Colombian Beats can be loaded into any DAW or workstation, and voiced at will. As MIDI data, the beats are flexible in terms of sound and tempo, and can be edited instrument-by-instrument, note-by-note.
Also included in the package are native Pattern format versions for leading workstation series, Motif (Motif 'Classic,' Motif ES, and Motif XS), and a PDF manual detailing all the beats and providing some insights into the Colombian music scene.
