His contribution to Latin music includes a unique √ímelodic√ď approach to conga playing, and has enabled his legacy to live on through his music. Played by professional congueros the world over, these fiberglass drums were developed in 1978 with √íPatato√ď, who required tall drums with a wide belly and small bottom that could project deep bass tones and great volume without sacrificing crisp, high sounds.
