Latin Roots: La Tribu De Abrante

From Puerto Rico to Philadelphia, hear a live set blending traditional bomba and plena with salsa, Latin jazz and lots of percussion.
On the last weekend of October, La Tribu de Abrante boarded a plane from Puerto Rico to Philadelphia to play a special live set, blending traditional bomba and plena with salsa, Latin jazz and lots of percussion. They played for hundreds of music fans - or, as frontman Hiram Abrante would prefer to call them: family. That's how Abrante thinks of his audience, and that point of view is at the core of La Tribu's music and the emotional connection they're able to inspire - especially at a time when things are so challenging in their home of Puerto Rico.
