Profiles in greatness: Selected works and solos by Ricardo Vidal Ferro Vicente - Cuba

Ricardo Vidal Ferro Vicente
Bongocero
1956 Conjunto Rumba Habana
1980 Conjunto Casino
1990 Septeto Habanero

What is nice about Ricardo Vidal Ferro Vicente's
playing style is that it is tasteful and all about simplicity.

He also at times plays an older style/pattern of cowbell/campana, with two beats on the back end consecutively throughout his ride.
Phonetically sounding like:
Toe ti-ki-Toe ti-ki-Toe ti-ki Toe
.
As opposed to now commonly:
Toe ti-ki-Toe ti-ki-Toe
ti--Toe.
