It is played with a strong "6 feel" and is a men's pantomime and acrobatic dance. Instrumentation for folkloric Rumba consists of three conga drums, properly know as tumbadoras ( tume bah dohr ahs ), claves ( kla vehs), cascara ( kas kar rah) or gua gua ( wah wah) - sticks played on a drum shell or piece of bamboo , a metal shaker called madruga (mah dru gah) and voices.
