Yurisander Pavon Despaigne

  • Elementary Music
  • Superior Level Percussion

Yurisander migrated to Australia from Cuba where music is a serious business. Yurisander studied music, specifically Cuban percussion, and graduated medium superior level which is equivalent to six years of University study in Australia.

You also may already know that the bongos, congas and timbale originated from Cuba which are now used in contemporary music all over the world. Yurisander's specialty is conga, bongo and a very traditional instrument called the batá drum. The batá is usually used in afro-cuban religious music but Yurisander will show you how he incorporates it into contemporary music.

Yuri is currently playing live locally at Lazybones and Butcher's Brew Bar with Cuban Social Club under the direction of Richard Ortega.
