Another great precussion solo : Mongo Santamaria

Well, Orion from the forums posted this video of Mongo Santamaria doing a precussion solo – and I just had to put it on the frontpage. Another great vintage video. The end part of the video talks about the african tribes, and how a new chief would would ask his expert craftsman to make an great instrument whose excellence would recognize the new Chief's greatness. Another interesting fact noted in the video (according to it), Elephant ears were used  as the covering of the drum.
