LAMA Hosts Day Of Percussion With Richie “Gajate” Garcia

Want to brush up on your bomba? Look no further. Los Angeles Music Academy is partnering with the drum department’s very own Richie Gajate Garcia for a Day Of Percussion on Saturday, June 12. With nearly 500 clinics under his belt and a résumé bursting with names like Phil Collins, Sting, Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, and Diana Ross, Garcia is the consummate professional both on the bandstand and in the classroom. During the event he will explain the finer points of Brazilian, Afro-Cuban, and contemporary pop percussion and delve into multiple percussion and hybrid setups. The Day Of Percussion will conclude with a concert featuring Garcia and his band, and students will be able to sit in during the second half hour of the performance.
