Candombe is the beat of Africa and it becomes Mainstream in Uruguay

Uruguay's Candombe: is a drum-based musical style rooted in African rhythms, and it was recognised as a cultural heritage by UNESCO recently. It was imported and practiced by slaves originally as a form of resistance and it was a method of communication among the slaves in the face of dangers, it has developed into a national tradition in Uruguay (that has a black population of 5% of the masses) that has evolved through time.

My spanish isn't the greatest, but I understood the essence of the video above, more or less there are differences between what original Candombe is and what it's being represented as in mainstream Uruguay (Kinda like how real hip hop differs from what one would hear on the radio lol). Let those who are of African descent in this video teach you the essence of there rhythm. When they finally play together in the end; the synchronization is really dope.
