Line Up

The Bugalu Foundation play a style of music influenced by Latin legends such as Ray Barretto, Mongo Santamaria, Tito Puente and Eddie Palmieri. Their sound is particularly evocative of the 70’s era of ‘Our Latin Thing’, when the musical traditions of New York’s east and west Harlem come together in an irresistible fusion of Jazz, Funk and Soul mixed with the Hispanic beats of ’El Barrio’. This nine/ten piece powerhouse, which features the remarkable Vocal talent of Martin Connor, has more than a hint of Palmieri’s ‘La Perfecta’, a good dose of the guitar fuelled Afro-Latin style of Joe Battaan and has a simple aim ; To move body and soul!
