The Clave is a field of rhythmic activity and there are many ways to describe it. We just learned Rumba Clave and how its accents fit into a flow of 16 counts.
In the next set of lessons we’ll learn how 5 similar Clave strokes fit into a cycle of 12 counts. This pattern is called Aba Cua Clave
We’ve just heard three different grooves of what is commonly known as Rumba Clave. This rhythm is increasingly popular in many forms of music.
The next three grooves cover the mysterious AbaCua Clave pattern which could be called “Six-Eight”, “Twelve-Eight”, or “Seis-por-Ocho”.
When you gain an embodied understanding of this pattern you will be able to easily navigate many forms of World music – including Jazz, Afro Pop, Fusion, Reggae, and more.
