LaTiDo's music takes us back in time, invites us to dance, and it is equally enjoyed by the more laid back listener. Close intricate vocal harmonies, the rhythm pulse of the Bongó drum and Bass, the unique sound of the traditional Tres Guitar (a three double set string instrument developed in Cuba) the Flute and the lively compositions are surely to please every audience. LaTiDo plays Latin Music from the heart.
This performance is made possible with funding from the Zellerbach Family Foundation, Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation and the Hewlett Foundation.
