Taíno show

Taínos were the first inhabitants of the island called Hispaniola, composed of Haiti and Dominican Republic, before the Conquistadores came in. Their sacred dances were called areítos and were used to communicate with their gods and spirits.
These dances were accompanied of diverse musical instruments, being the tamboras (drums) among them - and this translates directly to modern music in which tamboras play a big role.
