Ravel - Repetition

Ravel's famous Bolero (Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra)

Instrumental combinations start around 7'50" in this performance. The iconic drum rhythm found its way into other pieces. George Crumb used it (perhaps in part for its Spanish flavour) in Ancient Voices of Children (the section with this rhythm starts around 11 min. in)
Bjork's Hunter also uses this rhythm prominently (~1'10"):

It also featured in the animation film Allegro non Troppo (where the origin of life is a coke bottle):
