What do you mean by "project"?

One thing I noticed is how Martin(conga player) pushed aside the high
drum and played the pattern on the low drum, this is telling me this
is a "supportive pattern" where there is no riffing or very little if any.
It seems to be a fairly simple pattern to play.The way the timbal player
accents some beats on the hembra reminds me of Manny Oquendo and the
NYC style mozambique. It seems to me you dig this rhythms El Gran Combo
and Cortijo Y Su Combo played back in the day.

Thanks for the data.

To notate.

The bell would be:

1 _ 2 _ 3 _ 4 _ 5 _ 6 _ 7 _ 8 _

x _ x _ x x _ _ x x _ _ x x _ _

To me the way they play the jala jala is like a bomba hybrid.
That bell pattern that you notated, if I am reading it correctly,
those 1/8 notes are also part of the bell ride use to to play
bomba or plena the only difference is that for bomba and plena
is all 1/8 notes if I am not mistaken. By the way I am not formally
trained in music, "todo es de oido conmigo".

I'm also not trained in music, but I'm learning how to read. I recommend you this, as it would improve your knowledge.

That bell pattern is one of the bell patterns used in the rhythm Iyesa - at least it starts out as that, then it switches to a mozambique bell pattern - from what I hear.
