Carnegie Hall Citywide: Plena Libre

Saturday, April 30, 2022 5 PM Robert F. Smith Center for the Performing Arts at Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park
Plena Libre
The trailblazing Plena Libre has been thrilling international audiences for nearly three decades. Masters of the traditional Puerto Rican plena and bomba styles, Plena Libre fuses well-loved traditions with modern Afro-Caribbean influences, putting a new and always electrifying spin on this scintillating music. With mesmerizing hand drumming, raucous horns, and soaring three-part vocal harmonies, this multi-Grammy Award–nominated band always brings the heat.
