“The Rhythms of Life” was a book I accidentally ran into at the “Feria Del Libro” of Buenos Aires many years ago. Since the very first moment I was reading its pages thousands of songs began to sound inside me. Suspected answers and new questions appeared in my mind about how things happen in our world through the ages. The rough lines written and left in a drawer for decades fell onto the ground of nowadays technological means and finally grew up into sounds. Here are 21 tracks that made up the first volume.

All tracks composed, played & recorded by Humberto Luis Schenone
Recorded at “Living Records Studios”
Buenos Aires - Argentina

Humberto Luis Schenone was born in the British Hospital of Buenos Aires on september 6th 1955. Since his childhood had some school trouble for his pleasure of beating over anything making “candombe-batucada”. But first steps in music were in his teens singing and playing guitar in folk and rock groups. Dedicated to other kind of professional activities after university years and to study Spanish guitar with jazz & tango player Claudio Gomez. But it was many years later, in 1990, when he assumed his role as percussionist in music, after different periods travelling and living in Brazil. He settled in a house 30 kms away from Buenos Aires where he built his first “percussion-room” and started his studies of afro-american rhythms. His teachers in the art of percussion were Bam Bam Miranda, Abdoulaye Badiane, Ricky Olarte, Pocho Porteño, Hugo Nuñez among others. He has been part of several bands related with afro-percussion, bossa nova, samba, salsa, rock, south-american folk, tango, etc. Nowadays, again living in B.A. , is part of a Bossa & Samba Trio directed guitar player Cesar Blondet and participates as guest musician in other groups.
