Generations of South American Sounds

Shift from the chilled sound of Son to the chill of the Andean mountains where Bambuco is a favourite folk genre.

An alluring, flirtatious accompaniment to the dance of the same name, it has romance at its core. Discover how to feel it as you learn how to play it.

Learn Cuban Guitar Lessons

Camilo Menjura grew up in Bogota. 11 years’ learning local folk by ear inspired him to study classical guitar at one of Colombia’s top music Academies. He emerged with a rich understanding of musical theory and harmony, a refreshed perspective on traditional music, and a sharp insight into how to teach his native sound to students versed in orthodox approaches to the guitar.

Now based in Britain, he’s twice won Musician of the Year at the UK Latin Awards. His work spans everything from composing film and theatre scores to appearances at the Mali Festival of the Desert and WOMAD, through to leading London’s extraordinary World Music Choir. Composer, performer, teacher: Camilo is a multi-talented, dynamic, ambassador for Colombian culture.

This course leads you further on into the world of Latin American folk. Exploiting the full array of the Method’s armoury of teaching techniques (multi-view camera angles, slo-mo, notation, and conversation), Camilo provides a masterclass in Bambuco’s distinctive right-hand strumming style and delves deeper into Cuban Son with an arrangement of Pablo Milanes’ “Cancon”.

Using chord substitutions and adaptable variations to suit whatever style of playing you most favour, he gives you immediate access to the mysteries of the South American sound.
