Ruben Rada

Talented Uruguayan percussionist Ruben Rada got involved in music during the mid-'60s while playing in a group called El Kinto. While a teenager, the musician (nicknamed Zapatito) joined a Punta del Este act called Hot Blowers and later La Nueva Milonga. Known by his friends and fans as El Negro Rada, the singer/percussionist created an experimental candombe, combining unusual instruments to this particular style and enriching it to the level of a modern genre. Prominent musicians such as Milton Nascimento, Paul McCartney, Pablo Milanés, and Jon Anderson have been captivated by his performances. ~ Drago Bonacich

There was also Totem a group that had a huge influence.

Rada was also part of the short lived group OPA (one serious album MAGIC TIME) which featured Hugo Fattoruso on keyboards. They were a strong presence on Airto's album FINGERS, an absolutely essential Brasilian album of the 70's.
