This is fun danceable groove.
It’s not easy and it might take some time to learn but
once you get it, you’ll be sure to impress lots of people. 🙂

This beat can be played on one bucket but
I decided to add another bucket for a different timbre
(“tam-ber”- quality of a sound).

Latin + Funk = Latin Funk
This Latin rhythm close to a Cascara pattern.
The only difference is there is an extra note in the cascara pattern
that isn’t played here.

I learned this rhythm from my high school drum line and have
been playing with it ever since.

sheet music coming soon…
