Celia Cruz from "Affair in Havana" (1957)

Celia Cruz passed away July 16 2003. Here is a clip of her from the 1957 film "Affair in Havana." Can anyone identify the other percussionists?

Pretty sure it's maestro Jesus Perez playing iya right at the opening. Toques in order played: iya mase; iyesa; alaro; chachalekpafun. Pretty amazing footage. Sweet!

Oh my god, she's so young. God bless her and may she rest in peace. She was the best.
