Short history of the “American” Timbales, its development from its birth until today From its humble birth in Europe to its development in Cuba and later New York, the timbales went from being known as a strictly European instrument to the main musical instrument in the Latin music genre. Having its beginning, in the eighth century, during the Crusades, during the North African Moorish invasion of Spain and its occupation until 1492, this in combination with the conquest of the British Empire by the Turks, helped bring the drum to Europe. After the discovery of the new world by Christopher Columbus in 1492, the eventual expeditions and conquers by the British, French and Spaniards empires along with African slavery brought the drum in to the New World. Musicologists around the world agree that the European timpani are the antecedent of today’s timbales
