The havana XVIII century: Slaves in barracks move devilishly a drum beat. Siglo XXI, on a site in Havana, disarm at the same pace. The Cuban rumba by society to become the Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
When there are no tumblers (drums) or keys (elongated wooden cylinders), a Cuban recreates the sound of the rumba with a wooden crate and metal spoons. “I think all Cuban music is influenced by the rumba, because it includes the instruments, the conga, the tumbadora, the figure and the son”. Club Social del Buena Vista, the musical project.
From the Havana estates, the rumba slid to the most prestigious salons, where it was founded with the guaracha, the conga, the mambo and the cha cha chá.
