Latin Percussion artists Raul Rekow and Bulu Viloria participated in the 5th Annual 9Beats 2014 China International Drum Festival August 10-14, 2014 in Tanjin, China.

John Shand, KMC Music International Managing Director, said, “China is a growing market for Latin Percussion and we, together with our educational sales channel partner, Toning Drum and Percussion, were happy to put our full support behind Raul Rekow’s residency at the 9Beats Summer Camp in Tianjin, China.

One of the key elements of LP's approach to developing the market for our products in China is to work with educational institutions such as 9Beats to promote Latin instruments to drum and percussion teachers. Together with Toning, we have sponsored LP artists at the 9Beats camp for several years now. We're proud to be associated with the 9Beats organization.

LP artist Bulu Viloria, who participated in the camp at the invitation of Drums United of The Netherlands, accompanied Raul Rekow in two workshops and one Latin Percussion clinic. Over the course of the five-day event attendees had the chance to watch and learn from LP artists, as well as several other international instructors.

The event was sponsored by China’s 9Beats, China’s largest private drum school, which is based in Tanjin and has over 100 schools.
