The rumba has three variants: the columbia (fast), the yambu (slow), and the guaguanco (moderato). 

El Guayaboso is a choral guaguanco.  This was first composed in the 1960s for a youth chorus.  In the 1980s, the composer conceived of a version for mixed chorus in which the voices were to sing the percussion parts.  An excellent recording of this piece by the Cuban choral ensemble Exaudi is found on CD-04.
