Second Sundays: Bulla En El Barrio and Supermambo



Get energized with live Latin melodies recorded during the Pioneer Works Second Sunday event on July 12th, 2015.

Led by Barranquilla native Carolina Oliveros, the drummers and singers of Bulla en el Barrio explore new and classic Bailes Cantados of the music genre Bullerengue, which originated on the Carribean Colombian coast of Colombia. The group, consisting mostly of drummers and female singers, has deep African roots and possesses a mesmerizing, trance-like quality.

Supermambo plays in tribute to Mambo King and timbalero extraordinaire, Tito Puente. Grammy-nominated Felipe Fournier leads the group. He is a percussionist and vibes player from Costa Rica who plays with Ruben Blades and classic salsa outfit Our Latin Thing, and has assembled a group of musicians who have collectively played with some of the greatest Latin musicians--Eddie Palmieri, Willie Colon, and the late Tito Puente himself.
