5 Movements Are The KeyThe purpose of the Venezuelan maracas online course is to show, in just five key movements, the traditional language of maracas. Subsequently, these movements will become 25 basic combinations, which allow the student to work on motor independence and thus discover the true source where all the traditional Venezuelan rhythms come from.

M a r a k aStarring the young sensation and virtuous maraca player Manuel Rangel and with the help of Asier Cazalis in his directorial debut, we have a live musical show full of sensuality, romance, rhythm and energy.
Maraca FusionAlone on stage Manuel Rangel constructs with his two instruments ( maracas and guitar) a range of textures and atmospheres that narrate a musical story beginning with silence as an inspiration. What is particular and original about this performance, MARACA FUSION, are the electronic elements that Manuel finds as he processes the sound of the maracas and creates an infinite extension in the possibilities of this traditional Venezuelan instrument.
