Afro-Cuban percussion

Reinaldo « Flecha » Delgado

Latin America | Percussion

In both of Reinaldo’s classes, he teaches different ways of approaching Afro-Cuban music. Students can combine the complementary percussion and song lessons, which are taught one after the other on Wednesdays, for a more rounded experience of the music. Flecha has already been teaching Afro-Cuban dance for many years within the Ateliers d’ethnomusicologie.


Born in 1968 in Havana, Reinaldo Flecha began his career in the group Combaye. In 1989, he became professional with the folk group Raices Profundas, directed by Juan De Dios, and subsequently went on tour with them in Mexico. Numerous experiences with reputed groups like Mulemba, Conjunto de Danza Nacional de Cuba and Conjunto Folklorico Nacional de Cuba were to follow.

Since 1993, he has been working as a dancer, singer and percussionist with the great Lazaro Ros and his group Olorun, in addition to touring with them internationally. He has participated in films, documentaries and recorded several albums, including as a guest of Chucho Valdes and Gonzalo Rubalcaba. What’s more, he is also the first-drummer and singer in the Bata ensemble, Fundamento.
