During the early 90's, the music scene began to bustle with new trends. A new craze called drum circles began making headlines in the news, around the same time a new Latin sound called "Afro-Cuban" was hitting the pop charts with the Miami Sound Machine's hit "Conga". Hand drumming was receiving a great amount of press as more people began to take up hand drumming as a recreational hobby. People wanted to drum for a variety of health and wellness reasons, along with pure enjoyment. All the while, the Latin sound became more popular and mainstream. KMC Music decided to introduce Toca Percussion as a choice in hand percussion instruments and accessories. Toca was designed and developed to have a different look and provide the "Afro-Cuban" sound. These instruments made Toca unique from brands thus giving players and percussionists an alternative choice when looking for hand percussion instruments. All Toca wood drums have two-ply stave shells for added durability and are finished in many vibrant color options. Toca Percussion also offers players and drum enthusiasts a wide variety of percussion instruments and accessories that are designed and tested by players. Today, Toca is proud to be a part of the RBimusic Family and we are still committed to always offering the player a distinctive choice in style, design, and sound. Thank you for your continued support of Toca Percussion and we're happy to be a part of your musical life no matter what stage you're at.
