As in the Conga from Santiago, its beginnings were religious and its instruments were Bocúes (congas), a bell and a guiro.


The peculiarity of this rhythm is in the execution of the bells. As Rolando explains, one of the bells does the Rumba clave, a second one has to do with the Mozambique melodies and a third one with Brazilian Samba melodies.


Some melodies on the timbal and also three types of bass drums are performed.
