Mambo

As opposed to Salsa Mambo, the American style Mambo is more stylish, with more dramatic poses and tricks. Most people have trouble breaking on the two beat.

Music
This is a rare clip of Tito Puente, considered the best Afro-Cuban musician and timbales drummer ever, demonstrating his incredible skills on the timbales.
 

Music
Here, Tito plays Mambo Birdland, a classic. He drives the band along with his drums, representing a whole percussion section all by himself.
