Album Notes
2006 Latin Grammy Nominee “Best Tropical Traditional Album” This four-time grammy nominee Afro-Rican 13-member band is one of the hottest tropical bands today, known for their high-energy show and hard-driven native Puerto Rican folkloric rhythms plena and bomba, which are infused with salsa, jazz, other Afro-Caribbean rhythms, and topped with sizzling horn charts. Plena Libre presents an entertaining, dynamic and culturally infused program.

Combining a swinging rhythm section, horns and vocals, Plena Libre’s music has been given new light and patterns with contemporary dance floor styles such as songo, samba, reggae, salsa and pambiche. Add to that an electrifying stage presentation and choreographed dance steps and you have an extraordinary musical experience!

"The biggest band to play plena, which is a folkloric music out of Puerto Rico, PLENA LIBRE know the tradition but aren't afraid to draw upon stuff from outside the genre to keep it fresh”. . The Village Voice, April, 2006

“Where would the contemporary bomba and plena be without Gary Nuñez (of Plena Libre) 5 Stars Review -- The New York Post, November 2005

“the CD ROCKS!. It’s the best they’ve ever done, in fact I would rate it in my top 10 for the year”. . . KECG, El Cerrito, CA

“It has been more than a decade since Gary Nuñez baptized the group with the name plena libre, aiming to break musical and cultural boundaries. Their new CD and tour dates are now more borders crossed for this extraordinary group”. World Music Central

“. . . Evolución is a MUST”. Jaime Torres Torres, El Nuevo Día, San Juan, PR
