Roberto Plá to lead a 20-piece orchestra at London’s Barbican, July 16

Colombian percussionist Roberto Plá will be leading a 20-piece salsa orchestra performing the music of the New York Latin jazz and salsa collective the Fania All-Stars at London’s Barbican on July 16.

 

Plá will be leading the orchestra through the hits of the Fania All-Stars, a revolving cast of musicians from the New York-based Fania Records. The label was influential in the promotion of Latin American music in the ’60. Its modern take on traditional Afro-Caribbean music would particularly serve as the template of what soon would come to be known as the Fania Sound.

 

The orchestra led by Plá performing at the Barbican will include percussionist Robin Jones, the London Lucumi Choir and violinist Omar Puente.
