Great band and really nice people and super accommodating! The music was so good that several people asked us for their contact information.
Caribbean, Brazilian and American rhythms fused with catchy melodies. After 4 years traveling, touring and learning the languages of Caribbean and Brazilian musicians in Colombia, Brazil and Argentina, singer Bronson Tennis mixes his American roots with Afro-Latino rhythms to inspire an undeniably fun North/South American dance party.
Salsa, Son Cubano, Bossa Nova, Samba, Merengue, Bolero, Champeta, Soca, Reggae, Cha Cha! We also play more traditional pop music if more familiar sounds are desired (Beatles, Jack Johnson, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley). Our calendar speaks for itself.
De Tierra Caliente, which means "from hot land," delivers the sabor (flavor), spice and alegría of warm-weather Latin-American countries to audiences in the Northeastern US, where formidable winters and nose-to-the-grindstone work ethics sometimes overshadow simple pleasures like sharing a meal with friends or going out dancing.
They bridge the gap between "boricua" (Puerto Rican) and "gringo" communities, as Bronson is joined by Puerto Rican percussionist and Philly Salsa icon, Edwin "Papo Buda" Rosado, who for decades has performed with local groups such as the Latin Playboys and Saboricua and has even appeared with the world-renowned Gran Combo de Puerto Rico. At their show you can't help but WARM UP as upbeat songs in Spanish, English and Portuguese sing out the bright colors and familial heat of a South American kitchen.
Gracias for checking us out! And,
¡Sí! Will provide quality sound system if necessary :) These bi/trilingual musicians pride themselves on always managing a tasteful volume despite having multipercussions.
De Tierra Caliente lleva sabor a COCO y PIÑA. ¡Wepa je!
