In 'Para Todos Ustedes (For All of You),' New York's acclaimed Los Pleneros de la 21 wraps these venerable drumming, singing, and dancing traditions in a creative web of fresh arrangements, contemporary harmonies, and a message of pride in their musical ancestors. Trombonist Papo Vázquez, percussionist John Santos, salsero Hermán Olivera, and singer Miriam Félix join Los Pleneros de la 21 in this engaging, breakthrough album crafted from the solid strands of both old and new.
