Neighborhood Concert: Plena Libre

Friday, November 3, 2017 7:30 PM The Bronx Museum of the Arts
Plena Libre
Plena Libre performances are thrilling showcases, with hand drummers pounding out mesmerizing beats, raucous horns raising the roof, and swirling and soaring three-part vocal harmonies. Masters of the traditional Puerto Rican plena and bomba styles, Plena Libre fuses these traditions with modern Afro-Caribbean influences to put a new and always electrifying spin on this scintillating music. The Boston Herald described Plena Libre’s performances as “a mad weave of polyrhythms that simply sizzle.” Come and experience the heat.
