The Art of Playing Timbales, Volume 1 provides the perfect explanation of how the instruments of the Afro-Cuban percussion section (timbales, congas, bongos, and sometimes drumset) function as a unit. The rhythms are first presented for timbales, then with conga and bongos, and finally with adaptations for drumset.
