Anonymous asked: "The traditions of rumba will be strictly maintained." Can you direct those of us who are new to rumba to a written account of the rules/regulations/customs/code of conduct/traditions of rumba? Those of us who were not fortunate enough to grow up in Havana may need some guidance. Thanks.

Be humble.  Listen before you play.  Learn the clave.  Each instrument has a part, this is not a drum circle.  Realize this is not some stuffy music meant for auditoriums and dance halls, its essence is a culture of people who were stripped of their culture by slavery.  Come enjoy the music and check your ego.
