PlayRumba Flamenca

by Jeffrey Briggs

Rumba came to Cuba from Africa via slave ships, and Spanish mariners brought it back to Spain, where it became part of flamenco. It's syncopated beat can be counted 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2, with the accents on the beat of 1.

This recording was made on October 24th, 2002 at Cornell University. This piece is a selection from the album Ethnology of the Heart, which is available directly from me, or from CD Baby, iTunes, and other download services.
