Richie Flores and Horaccio ‘El Negro’ Hernandez

ACM had to appoint someone to go around and collect the jaws laying on the floor after a visit from ultra-talented Cuban sensations Richie Flores and Horaccio ‘El Negro’ Hernandez.

El Negro took the students through the use of ‘Clave’ within Afro-Cuban music and demonstrated it with blistering results. Flores picked up from Hernandez by showing the audience why he is known for having some of the fastest percussion hands on the planet by sailing across his eight full-size congas. Blimey!
