Retribución

After 4 years of hard work of investigation on how to adapt the rhythms of Afro-Venezuelan drums with percussive effects of flutes, the moment has come in which Manuel Rojas would like to share with everyone of you, his first promotional, “Afroflautas” (Afro-Flutes); belonging to his second CD entitled Retribución” (Retribution), as a gift which all of his friends and fans will be able to DOWNLOAD FREE HERE of charge this Christmas.

Afroflautas (Fulia)..........Composition and Harmonic Arrangement by Manuel Camero

Prima: C Flute (Percussive)
Cruzao:  C Flute (Percussive)
Pujao:  Bass Flute (Percussive)
Maracas:  Voice


Executive and Musical Production:  Manuel Rojas
Production and direction of the perucussive rhythms with flutes:Yonathan (Morocho) Gavidia
Recording, editing, mixing and mastering: Juan Carlos Almao
Recorded in the “Flor de Venezuela” room (Barquisimeto, Venezuela)
Cover Design:  Arnoldo Porta

All of the harmonic, melodic and percussive sounds in this promotional were produced with flutes and executed by Manuel Rojas.

The Afro-Venezuelan rhythms "culo 'e puya" through percussive effects on the flute in "Retribución (Retribution)"

This is an experimental work, the idea was to try to innovate, and it is a theme that is based on the well-known Afro-Venezuelan rhythm like the tambor redondo or culo e puya; it is a battery of three drums and maracas.  And … well the main idea was to work the drums with percussive sounds and take them to the studio and try to make it as similar or as close as possible to the sound of the drums.


For many years, I have been trying to get new sounds on the flute to find new colors. I can say that this theme is the consolidation of all these years of study and work with the flutes, it is a name that we wanted to put to the song, giving thanks to my God and Lord, rewarding in some way all things He has given to; the talent, life and all the wonderful things that we can live day to day,


It is important to stress that this theme RETRIBUTION was composed by Pedro Jimenez and myself. Pedro Jimenez was one of the persons who led me and motivated me to record this song, I actually  thank him, and a great percussionist friend of mine who gently explained to me the origin of each drum and its sound; my friend Yonder Rodriguez, a percussionist from  Lara State.
