Just in case you're interested. What I usually do is save every picture, image that I like and then save on to a special images folder then I use the images for my desk top screen saver, I love it.
P.S. by the way I've just added a few more images, if you know what I mean :)

Not precisely rumba, but here is a photograph my great-grandfathers took in the village of Omatemba
around 1915 when they were Protestant missionaries in the Ovambo region in former German South West Africa (today Namibia):
Drummer Southwest Africa 1915.jpg

EDIT: I do not know the name of the drum shown in the picture, but it looks like an Ashiko-like drum? :?
Peace & drum

Album cover art from Haiti 1958
Unfortunately, whoever captured this image did it with a flash, which washes out the color on top of painting.

Bold colors, lots of movement.

The additional text on bottom says:
"the screaming end, direct from a smoking Haitian dance dive"
