PRLog - Oct. 11, 2012 - FULLERTON, Calif. -- (STANHOPE, N.J.) Back by popular demand, percussionist and three-time Emmy Award-winner Emedin Rivera and his Latin jazz trio, Tropical Turbulence, return to the Stanhope House (45 Main Street, Stanhope) Thursday, October 11 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10.

Rivera's award-wining style led to the invention of the Cyclone Shaker, a percussion instrument that emulates a rain stick. "Every percussionist should have one," said Rivera, who is also the brainchild behind Bongo Heads known as EM-RAYS made with sturdy double-ply plastic that withstands moisture, heat and cold, producing excellent sound for recording. "As a percussionist, I'm always thinking one step ahead and adding to my library
of sound, always creating in my mind that transcends into my music."

ABOUT PERCUSSIONIST EMEDIN RIVERA:
Emedin Rivera started playing the bongos at 8 years old and his passion for music grew exponentially because of his father and uncle who both played in a trio in Puerto Rico.

Emedin has a unique and creative ability to incorporate and blend his Latin Caribbean African influences into a vast array of musical styles. Rivera, over the years, has developed his own system of playing drums and congas simultaneously, (sounding like three people), calling it "Percussion Kit." He is well known for his sound effects, many of which are hand made by him. They can be heard on some of the National Geographic shows.

Rivera has won three Emmy Awards - New York: A Documentary Film (2003) directed by Ric Burns, The American Experience (2004), and Picture Perfect: The Stories Behind the Greatest Photos in Sports (2002) for best music. He is also featured in the September 2012 issue of Modern Drummer Magazine.

Emedin has performed live with Harry Belafonte, Gregory Hines, Paquito D'Rivera, Vicky Sue Robinson, Angela Bofill, Gloria Gaynor, Ben E. King, Dave Samuels, Dave Valentine, Andy Narell, Latoya Jackson, David Broza, Emeline Michel and Bernie Williams just to name a few.

He has recorded live with Larry Coryell, Bob James, Chuck Mangione, Nelson Rangell, Harry Belafonte, Maria Schneider, Rick Cua, Denise Williams, Albert Castiglia (Keeping On); Emeline Michel (Reine de Coeur); Blues Council (Let the Healing Begin); Paula Atherton (Inter Play); Lou Watson (Taking a Chance on Love); Thos Shipley (My Favorite Things); Clyde Criner (The Color of Dark) and many others. Movie soundtracks include Sixteen Blocks, Tough Turf, End of Night and more. Commercial credits include Anheiser-Busch, Mercedes-Benz, Visa, 7 Up, Crest Toothpaste and more.
