Latin Percussion
LP Founder Martin Cohen, first came across Batá drums more than 40 years ago at a religious ceremony in the Bronx, New York. Traditionally Batás are ceremonial drums that are played in groups. At least three people sit, each with a different size drum, and act out "call and answer” patterns which are played on the drums. Contemporary drummers often use two or three Batás in a stand on their percussion set-up.
