Quinto y Tumbador (plena)

Quinto y Tumbador (plena)

Félix Díaz, founder of Los Pleneros de Pueblo and requintero with Los Pleneros de la 23 Abajo, composed this plena corrida. "Quinto and tumbador refer to the smallest and largest of the three pandereta drums: requinto, punteador, and seguidor. The seguidor, the largest, is sometimes erroneously referred to as the tumbador. This version includes an exceptional section with three simultaneous requintos in the hands of Juan "Richard" Martínez, Joksan Ramos, and Tito Matos. The arrangement is a collaboration of Félix Díaz and Tito Matos.
