S.O.B.'s Latin Concerts Presents:
Back By Popular Demand!
Live Cuban Timba!
Featuring DJ David Medina
La Bolá is one of the top Timba bands in the US and has developed into a powerful force in the Cuban music scene. Drawing from some of the leading Cuban musicians in the tri-state area (as well as some non-Cuban infiltraos), this group emerged out of a deep desire to establish a real Timba-band in the NYC-area and across the US, one which reflected the real sounds of "la calle Cubana". Their approach is to provide an eclectic blend of Cuban music, ranging across a wide spectrum of styles and genres, yet in a refreshingly modern Timba style. La Bolá centers on harmonious, groove-set Timba music, that is not aggressive or confusing, but easy to understand, engaging and more importantly, very danceable.
“If you like your music hot, hot, hot, visit S.O.B.'s, the city's top world-music venue, specializing in Brazilian, Caribbean, and Latin sounds. The packed house dances and sings along nightly to calypso, samba, mambo, African drums, reggae, or other global grooves, united in the high-energy, feel-good vibe. Bookings include top-flight performers from around the globe; Astrud Gilberto, Mighty Sparrow, King Sunny Ade, Eddie Palmieri, Buckwheat Zydeco, Beausoleil, and Baaba Maal are only a few of the names who have graced this lively stage. The room's Tropicana Club style has island pizzazz that carries through to the Caribbean-influenced cooking and extensive tropical-drinks menu. This place is so popular that it's an excellent idea to book in advance, especially if you'd like table seating.”
