Ever seen someone play the conch shell?

July 20th, 2005 · No Comments

Clave Con Jazz provided island (as in Caribbean, not Bainbridge) salsa music – and dance lessons! – tonight at the third Waterfront Park Concert of 2005. The lead singer warned us that the band would make the last piece a memorable one. The finale’s secret? Conch shell! I don’t think I’d ever seen someone play the conch shell. If you’d like to take a look and listen yourself, please see this short video clip I posted (testing out vimeo this time [found via Michael Hansom]) Apologies for the bumpy view – I was trying to dance too! Below is a still picture – notice the player’s hand moving inside the shell to change the tones while he blows through the conch! Thanks to Clave Con Jazz (here’s the best link I could find for them: scroll down the page) for a fun concert tonight!
