Jazz on the Green Plena Libre

Bobbi White 64 views


The Puerto Rican-based band Plena Libre performs July 16. The band has introduced the Puerto Rican style of traditional music, plena and bomba, to a new generation, blending it with the Afro-Caribbean beats of merengue and cumbia, and Afro-Cuban style of mambo. Unlike salsa bands, who usually only have two singers, Plena Libre features five vocalists singing in three- and four-part harmonies. Pre-show Latin dance lessons led by Omaha Ballroom kick off the evening
