Afro-Uruguayan percussionist el Negro Rada returns to BA to revise his extensive repertoire — full of classic songs — as well as his latest work Amoroso Pop (2013).
Owner of a singular style that combines humour, pop and Uruguayan rhythms, Rada has been an active contributor to the development of Latin American music since he started his professional career in 1955. The Latin Grammy Achievement award winner will surely deliver a lively, energized performance intertwined with his usual wisecracks and interactions with the audience — the kind of festive event he has been delivering for over 60 years.
