Audiences young and old alike will delight in this cultural work designed to feature the percussion section. Highlighted by authentic Cuban rhythms, this piece utilizes timbales, bongos, congas, claves, maracas and guiro. An infectious dance-like melody is punctuated in the winds as the perfect compliment to the entire presentation. Sit back, relax and enjoy the "cool" sounds of "Mambo Cubano.".
