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.

Hi Peter, Sorry for not returning back yet. I am starting new year at college and am getting into the first few weeks swing but will return to drumming next week. Have been listening to the recording to start practice so hopefully won't be starting from scratch again.

See you next week,
