Any one knows where I can buy a set or individual Bata drums in Havana?

Good stuff bro. Hopefully the organisers have picked up their game... I wont get into that on here though.

Id send you to my guy, but he makes them on request as enteriso (solid shell) with stainless steel hardware. There is normally a 2 - 3 week turn around on them.
If you are there for limited time, just ask any of the major guys playing. Decent set of brand new Aberikula should not set you back more than $250 CUC, maybe $300 CUC if they are enteriso with stainless steel hardware and of the highest finish quality.

How long you staying for?

Abakua, we've been studying bata here for a few years, and we occasionally send bata videos that are really good to learn something from to each other. My friend Karl just sent this one a few days ago. http://youtu.be/OGUtrS0RhhI. Isn't that your band mate Dominic playing Itotele in Havana? Great video recording :!:

Hey Dave, yes thats my bro Dom. That was shot in Regla, Havana about a few weeks before he made Santo. He spent 4 months in Havana on his most recent trip.
