My experience with KoSA CUBA was definitely one of the high points of my 45 year career in percussion. The all-inclusive nature of the flights, accommodations, food, clinics, concerts and transportation made for a very comfortable and enjoyable week. The level of musicianship was supreme and consistent across the board for all of our clinics and concerts. The All Star Cast of preeminent Cuban Drummers and Percussionists was friendly and virtuosic.

They were happy to share their knowledge and were patient and understanding. We got to share the expertise of at least 3 generations of consummate musicians! Panga, El Peje, Yaroldy, Jean Roberto, Ramses, Oliver, Amadito and many more—basically blew our minds. I heard some of the tightest bands ever! The camaraderie of our tour group was excellent and sustained throughout the week. Of course one should expect the unexpected as changes to the schedule offer some golden opportunities. KoSA CUBA has had an immediate and positive effect on my playing and teaching.

My advice to anyone thinking of joining KOSA Cuba is: GO!! By taking the leap you will open and broaden your musical horizons. To put it simply, I loved it and recommend participation to anyone with an interest in percussion. KoSA CUBA was incredible and I hope to be able to return as soon as I can. Viva KoSA!!!
