Cuban Rumba Study Course

In november 2012, Colin participated on the annual residential percussion course in Havana Cuba organised by La Timbala. He received a training grant form the Arts Council of Wales to help towards some of the tuition fees. The course was an opportunity to work with many of the prominent figures in the Havana Rumba Scene. Colin Daimond Bata Cuba 2012 Colin Daimond Congas Tumbadores Cuba
