"The following exercises will help to develop the strokes discussed above [tap, up-stroke, accent with rebound, accent without rebound, and press stroke] and will also introduce students to the rhythms of the Brazilian samba and Afro-Cuban mambo grooves, which have been transcribed for the marching percussion section.”

Check out this excellent article combining world rhythms and drumline technique development from the June 1997 issue of Percussive Notes.
