TRIO RUMBADAMA


video: http://youtu.be/YQdZEObeJRU

From the very first time Leticia asked Delia González and Tyrone Collis to join her for a concert as a trio, Leticia completely fell in love with the sound of this adventurous line up.
With herself on the warm and exotic marimba, playing the typical piano/guitar patterns she knows so well from her Latin bands, Tyrone on his heavy sounding baby bass and Delia singing the lead vocals and playing her swinging maracas,
the trio plays lots of Cuban sones, Brazilian samba and bossa nova, merengue and some African tunes as well as some of Leticia's compositions.
Although the line up is so special and not typical for Cuban and Brazilian music, people often dance their shoes off when they hear them play...
Trio Rumbadama works as a background trio, at 'bailes' and gives recitals.

Line up:
Leticia Bal: marimba, backing vocals, foot pedals
Delia González: leadvocals, hand percussion
Tyrone Collis: bass, backing vocals, pandeiro, foot pedals
