Join in a small, socially distanced group rumba session, one of the major "genre complexes" of Cuban music.
£10 / £5 concession. Places are limited. Please book on 01736 448402
The core instruments of any rumba ensemble are the claves, two hard wooden sticks that are struck against each other, and the conga drums: quinto (lead drum, highest-pitched), tres dos (middle-pitched), and tumba or salidor (lowest-pitched).
Other instruments include the catá, a bamboo cylinder; the palitos, wooden sticks to strike the catá; shakers such as the chekeré and the maracas; scraper percussion instruments such as the güiro; bells and cajones, wooden boxes that preceded the congas.
