    Carlos Valdés (November 4, 1926 – December 4, 2007), better known as Patato, was a Cuban-born American conga player. In 1954 he emigrated from La Habana to New York City where he continued his prolific career as a sideman for several jazz and Latin music ensembles, and occasionally as a bandleader. He invented and patented the tunable conga drum which revolutionized the use of the instrument in the US. Tito Puente once called him "the greatest conguero alive today".

  • Learn How To Dance Cuban Salsa Play all

    Learn how to dance Cuban-style salsa, also known as casino, with Nicholas Van Eyck and Serena Wong. Salsa Cubana traces its origin as a partner dance from Cuban son, fused with partner figures and turns. As with the son, danzon and cha cha cha, it is traditionally, though less often today, danced "a contratiempo". This means that no step is taken on the first and fifth beats in each clave pattern and the fourth and eighth beat are emphasized. We’re thrilled to incorporate Miami, Havana, Santiago and Rueda styles into this series.
