Latin Styles For Your Keyboard, Plus Schlager & Pop Hits From Yamaha Europe

The German Download Shop has done it again this month, bringing you six great new styles and 20 new songs that are sure to keep you glued to your keyboard until the next new files come around. All files are available from Yamaha MusicSoft, and include both MIDI and style versions of the Black Eyed Peas hit, "I Gotta Feeling", as well as great new Latin styles. The five new Latin styles are designed specifically for the Tyros3, and cover tango, pasodoble, salsa, cha cha and cumbia.

All of the styles are perfectly suited as accompaniments for dancing, in addition to providing great sound and flexibility for your Latin performances. Each style gives you a rich full accompaniment with piano, horns, and a variety of percussion - claves, congas, shakers, and all the other sounds that make Latin beats so intriguing. They're tons of fun to play with, but they also sound amazing, making them an indispensable addition to any Latin player's style library.

Gran Salsa - Everything you need to play a perfect salsa. Horns and piano provide harmonic accompaniment, along with a strong bassline and timbales, cowbell and a variety of latin percussion.

Tango Argentino - The accordion (or bandeon) leads the way on this style, along with strings, both plucked and bowed, that creates a very authentic Argentine Tango feel.

Also new this week are tons of MIDI songs, including German Schlager, various instrumentals, as well as current pop hits. In addition to "I Gotta Feeling", which we already mentioned, there are recent hits from the Gossip, Ich + Ich and Amy MacDonald just waiting to fire up your keyboard and get you playing along.

Don't Tell Me That It's Over - Amy MacDonald
