As busy as his schedule is,  Perazzo still finds the time to record with numerous performers, and co-leads two bands in the Bay Area, including the popular salsa band Avance and the "tipico" conjunto he shares with Michael Spiro: Conjunto Karabali. And now he has begun this video series for CongaMasterClass.com. because he strongly believes that the knowledge he has is not his to keep, but to be shared with people around the world!
