ABOUT

Grupo ATABAL (or just ATABAL) plays Afro Puerto Rican music emphasizing plena, bomba and salsa. For almost 35 years, this Puerto Rican ensemble has performed throughout the United States, the Caribbean and Europe. They’ve recorded eight independent CDs and are working on a new one.
You can sit to just listen to Atabal but, most probably, you will want to get up and dance to the rhythms of their interpretations of plena, bomba and salsa. The Puerto Rican “pandero” and bomba drums have that effect on listeners. Atabal plays public and private activities and offers plena and bomba workshops.
