Default What's this groove called?

I was wondering, what most people call the following groove, which is played in 8th notes.

The snare is played on the "2" and then again on the "a" of the "2" and on the "e" of the "3". Then again on the "4". While the bass drum is just played on the "1" and the "3".

Note: The "a" and the "e" are played (with the left hand) when the right hand (the hand that is playing on the hi hat) is in the air (not striking the hi hats).

Thanks.

It sounds kinda like a Rhumba.

There's no ethnic or particular name for it, but most would call it a rock beat. It's just one of many variations on a simple beat (kick on 1 and 3, snare on 2 and 4), having two snare notes between the hi-hat notes (on the ah of 2 and the e of 3).

Snare notes can be added in between, or along with, the 8th notes on the hi-hat to create more variations. Pretty basic stuff here.
