Danilo Gossain on SoundBetter

Multi awarded Latin Grammy nominee, conga and bongo player. Specialized in coloring with three congas.

Hi everybody! I have worked as a professional conga/bongo player for over 30 years, both as a studio sessionist and as a live player. My playing can add color to your tracks, whether they are Pop, Rock, Latin, or any music style you want to experiment with. And if you want me to add a special magic to them, I can get very creative and invent patterns with one, two, or three congas. Just tell me what you want and I’ll treat your project as if it was my own!!!!

Contact me through the green button above and let's get to work.

    Working with Danilo is always a pleasure! He's an amazing percussionist who knows just what the song needs! He's also a great communicator and a very nice person all around. Also, very reasonable rates and turn around times. I highly recommend working with him!

    Danilo delivered some of the best played bongos and conga tracks I’ve ever heard, top notch quality recorded tracks, ready to be mixed down. Thank you for a great performance.

    It was great working with Danilo Gossain. I sent him a song with six different parts to it, and the congas and bongos were right in the grove pocket of every section of the song. Thanks for the fantastic drumming, Danilo.

    Danilo is awesome! I had him record on one tune and liked it so much I asked him to record on another. Without a doubt, his playing elevated the quality of the songs. He's a total pro -- and at the same time he's accessible, friendly, and responsive. I recommend him whole-heartedly!

    This is the second time I choose to work again with Danilo because I needed some Cumbia-style percussions to liven a song in that style, something a percussion loop couldn't achieve. He's very quick in answering, powerful musical timing and playing and great recording quality of his instruments.

    Round 2 of working with Danilo and his follow through was great once again! Grooves were on point and right in the pocket too!!
