Orlando "Puntilla" Ríos
1947-2008

Havana percussionist who moved to NY during the 1908 Mariel and became the leading influence in bata and rumba. He played at many tambores in the NY area and made several CDs:

He interpreted "Oferere" and "Arere" on the "Totico y sus Rumberos" record in 1992, in which he was the musical director.

He formed his own group, "Nueva Generación," which released a live album, "Spirit Rhythms" in 1987 -- this is now out of print.

He worked with EmilioBarretto on the  Santissimo CD, released in 2001.
