Another great session with Jacobo... I came looking for congas on a track, but he went above and beyond and built an entire percussion arrangement that was just amazing. He's super creative and knows these instruments so well. Looking forward to the next one!
Jacobo added some beautifully-recorded percussion that really brought my track to life. He turned everything around super quickly and made the process easy and fun! Could not ask for more!

Interview with Jakogarces percussion
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Funky! even my full latin recordings (salsa, bolero) sound funky.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would like to be tour percussionist with Luis Fonsi. His show is really amazing, and the musicians are true pros. I also would like to work with salsa stars, like Willie Colon and Ruben Blades.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always record the main percussion instrument (like conga or drumset) then do the other simpler instruments. Keep the fills very simple if you use many percussion instruments!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, latin jazz, salsa, house, folk music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I am very professional at my job, in terms of communication, responsibility, honesty, punctuality. Musically, I am versatile, and tight to the tempo. I also have strong skills in percussion recording editing in the DAW.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring dinamism, I can make it sound "full", I can add creative grooves, creative ways of using an instrument. I can add things that normally a producer who is not a latin percussionist, would not think about, but they would sound really good.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I get the song without percussions, or with midi percussions. Then I suggest which percussion instruments to add, and in what style to do it. Sometimes I send examples that I recorded, or famous songs. Then I make the client an offer with the price, usually between $40 and $70, depending on the time and number of instruments. After I get the approval of the client, I record and deliver the job in the next three days maximum. Then we check if it needs revisions. Finally the client gives me his/her feedback.
