yambú ? Los Muñequitos de Matanzas 12_Baba_Cuello_Mao Tumi Cuba Classics V3. Interesting to me because it is the first yambú I have heard with rumba clave!
yambú 1985 Grupo Afrocuba yambú Official Retrospective of Cuban Music - strange clave
tumba francesa? 1958? Tiroro - "the best drummer in Haiti" Tiroro - trk 1 & trk 2 CD Smithsonian Folkways Recordings from Cook C-5004 LP Side 1

This is not rumba, strictly speaking, but it is included because it is one of the first non-jazz drumming LPs I ever purchased.

I think it may be or is in the style of tumba francesa.
