DOR-90245 Cover - 17847 Bytes Tambuco was founded in 1993 by four distinguished Mexican musicians whose musical attention focuses on four main goals.

1.) To collaborate extensively with composers of all nationalities in order to develop a repertoire of their own.

2.) To develop a very personal style of interpretation when performing the main works of the international percussion repertoire.

3.) To perfect the techniques and idioms used in contemporary music.

4.) To incorporate music, instruments and playing techniques of ethnic origin, and offer them to diverse audiences and also to the composers who write for Tambuco. Over time Tambuco has acquired and played over one hundred percussion instruments from various parts of the world.
