Martin Cohen is really on a roll, releasing super-high quality videos of New York's growing community of world class Cuban musicians. Iván Llanes, who came with Maraca on drums, turns out to be a great singer as well.
Orquesta Pomo Medley
Orquesta Pomo medley from Gröna Lund
Stockholm Salsa Summer 2012 officially came to an end with a concert by Orquesta Pomo on September 22nd at the last salsa night at Stockholm's amusment park Gröna Lund. Despite the chilly, rainy weather the dancers showed up and the dancefloor was packed. The 13-man band continues to impress with Celia Ferrer and Cristian Guerra on lead vocals and Cristina Pomo and Alexander Saltell on coros. They are tight, well rehearsed and have tailored the show to dancers. Bandleader and pianist Jonas Pomo has written most of the songs, although they do include a couple of covers that are real crowd pleasers.
Orquesta Pomo has put together a 4 minute montage from the concert, and we share it with you for your viewing and listening pleasure. And just when you think it's over, don't close your browser yet because there is a little recording of just the horns from the soundcheck and it is smokin'! You don't want to miss it! For pictures from the concert as well as the latest info on what is happening with the band check out the Orquesta Pomo Facebook page.
