…most Latin bands have 1 drummer and 1-3 percussionists (timbale player,Dude...most Latin bands have 3 drummers.One guy on a drum kit,one Timbale player,and a conga/bongo player,and sometimes a percussionist too.
I would also add the Doobie Brothers to the 2 drummer list of bands.
If you want to see something even better,then check out the "Concert for George"(Harrison).Four drummers and percussion playing at one time.
I disagree.I grew up around Latin/Cuban music,and all the congueros and timbaleros I know consider themselves drummers,and not percussionists.After all...they do play drums,don't they?.…most Latin bands have 1 drummer and 1-3 percussionists (timbale player,
conga player, etc) ;-)> I thought the OP meant "drummers" as in "drum kit players".
But nonetheless, good latin bands are quite extraordinary on swinging/grooving as
a single unit.
And yes, the two drummer thing is really fun and quite challenging actually. Just
keeping it in the pocket with another drummer is really rewarding when it's working >
