This rhythm is universally found in most cultures around the world in some shape or form. A variation of this rhythmic grouping is the basis for beats such as the Brazilian Baio, Trinidad’s Calypso, Puerto Rican Bomba and Reggaeton, US’s Charleston, Spanish Rumba, all the way to the various rhythm in the Middle East, India, and Africa.
