founded: 1993

During the early 90's, the music scene began to bustle with new trends. A new craze called drum circles began making headlines in the news, around the same time a new Latin sound called Afro Cuban was hitting the pop charts with the Miami Sound Machine's hit Conga. Hand drumming was receiving a great amount of press as more people began to take up hand drumming as a recreational hobby. People wanted to drum for a variety of health and wellness reasons, along with pure enjoyment. All the while, the Latin sound became more popular and mainstream.

At this time, there was only one dominant brand in the percussion/hand drum market manufacturing hand drum instruments. Kaman Music decided to introduce Toca Percussion as an alternative choice in hand percussion instruments and accessories. Toca was designed and developed to have a different look and provide the Afro Cuban sound. This made Toca different from the dominant brand thus giving new players and percussionists an alternative choice when looking for hand percussion instruments.
