The real thing in rumba still is fairly rare on record. Even rarer are recordings by groups other than Los Munequitos, Los Papines or Carlos Embales. More than half the cuts on Real Rumba are by virtually unknown groups. What's more, it includes the other major rumba styles as well as guaguanco: columbia, yambu, and a new development involving bata drums and called batarrumba. It has decent notes.
