"Vera Cruz Island" Multi-Media Package Combines Music And Instruction To Create A Comprehensive New Method For Playing Brazilian Rhythms On The Drumset.

Written by leading Brazilian drummers Vera Figueiredo and Daniel Oliveira, Vera Cruz Island (Hudson Music) is a new book and double CD package that offers the most progressive and complete system ever presented for applying Brazilian rhythms to the drumset. The multi-media education package is based on Figueiredo's Vera Cruz Island CD, which features original compositions based on authentic Brazilian influences and a host of top Brazilian musicians as well as guest appearances by drummers Dave Weckl and Dennis Chambers, and includes a copy of the full-length audio CD, a second, minus-drums, play-along version of the disc and a 106-page book.

The book contains examples of traditional and contemporary Brazilian forms such as Maractau, Baião, Bossa Nova, Choro, Chamamé and several types of Samba, plus detailed breakdowns, explanations and transcriptions of all the drum parts from the songs on the CD. This unique combination of musical and instructional content provides teachers and students with both an unprecedented insight into challenging yet popular Brazilian styles and a straightforward method for adapting Brazilian rhythms and sounds to the modern drumset.
