The barriles, also known as the barriles de bomba, are Puerto Rican instruments, drums that are central to the island’s bomba music. Traditional barriles are made of rum barrels with drumheads made of goat skin. You must have at least two drums to perform bomba: a Primo bomba, which follows the dancer closely–and the buleador, which maintains the beat.
