This Puerto Rican and Cuban influenced band is reviving Latin folkloric styles like son montuno, guaracha, and salsa by combining them with the fiery rhythms of bomba. Though only consisting of 6-musicians, this conjunto makes up for size with their explosive enthusiasm. They are widely known for their improvisation that keeps audiences on their toes.
