Late one night en el Barrio, 117th Street

A rumba is like a living thing...it has ebbs and flows....it is fed by the passion and energy of the drummers...the singer can manipulate it to great heights or tranquil lows...no chorus, no rumba...the waves are actually palpable....this video is a good example of this phenomenon.
