“The melodies are gorgeous and the tunes perfectly arranged, precise rhythms making way for singing or a drum section.” – The New York Times
Los Pleneros de la 21
East-Harlem based performing ensemble LP21 brings their premier Puerto Rican Bomba and Plena to BlackRock! Known for their exceptional musical talent and their didactic approach to performances LP21 has brought Puerto Rican culture to Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Latin America, Australia, Berlin, The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, The Kremlin, and countless other international cities and prominent venues to pave the way for many other musicians who now share their stage.
After the show, please join us for a Q&A with the artists, moderated by Angel Rivera, from Cultura Plenera.
This engagement of Los Pleneros de la 21 is funded through the Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
