The Artistry of Afro-Cuban Batá Drumming

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter examines the life and career of batá drummer Pancho Quinto, with a focus on illustrating and contextualizing his unique style as an iyá player and teacher. At the time of his death in 2005 at age 71, Pancho was one of the oldest batá masters in Cuba. He was a teacher to legions of Cuban drummers and likely taught more non-Cubans than any other master. Pancho was a world-renowned recording artist, particularly as a rumbero, and was widely regarded as an innovator, especially within the style of rumba known as guarapachangueo.

Keywords:   batá drummer, lead drummer, iyá, guarapachangueo
