PIANO TUTORIAL – Afro-Cuban Latin Jazz Explained

In this jazz piano theory video tutorial made by Walk That Bass, you are going to learn what Afro-Cuban Latin Jazz is and how to play it. Latin Jazz, as the name implies, is Jazz that uses rhythms derived from Latin American music.

There are two main categories of Latin Jazz: – Afro-Cuban Jazz – based on Cuban music with genres like mambo, cha-cha and salsa & popular in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s (sometimes referred to as Cubop) – Afro-Brazilian Jazz – based on Brazilian music with genres like the bossa-nova and samba & popular in the 1960’s.

In Afro-Cuban Jazz, every instrument is allocated a particular rhythm which they music play throughout the entire song, with little to no variation. All these different rhythms then mesh and combine together to create an Afro-Cuban feel or groove. And the most important of these rhythms is the clave rhythm.
