Amadito Valdès “the timbal magician” was born in Havana, February 14th 1946. He studied at the Havana Conservatoire with maestros Guillermo Barreto and Alfredo de los Reyes. He is the creator of a unique style of improvising on the timbales, which mixes Afro rhythms in 6/8 with the son syncopated rhythms in 2/4.

Valdès has worked with all the most important Cuban big bands since the ‘70s and recorded countless albums with artists of the stature of Las D’Aide, Paquito Revera, Emiliane Salvador, Bebo Valdès, Las Estrellas de Areito and Peruchin. Since 1997, he has recorded and toured the globe with artists such as Juan do Marco and the Afro-Cuban-Allstars, Rubèn Gonzàlez, Felix Baloy. He is featured in Wim Wender’s famous movie Buena Vista Social Club and has also performed at the 42nd annual Grammy Awards 2000 in Los Angeles featuring Grammy Winner Ibrahim Ferrer.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.

Please select your country/region
