A taste of authentic Caribbean culture will reverberate through Sand Point Park in downtown Titusville when Plena Mar Latino, a Puerto Rican group of 12 dynamic musicians, will perform their exciting and entertaining sound at the Titusville Mardi Gras Street Party & Parade, Saturday, February 11 in historic downtown Titusville.
Plena Mar Latino started as a group of four members consisting of Güiro, Punteador, Seguidor and Requinto. Then the congas, trumpets, trombones and bass were added.
Today the group consists of 12 professional musicians in its branch and thus highlighting that typical acoustic sound that is still heard playing in the corners of our neighborhoods in Puerto Rico. But at the same time, it is our attempt to maintain a tradition that, instead of staying, distant and forgotten, is reinvented originally and dynamically.
A modern group, full of energy, with young, modern visions and with much desire to continue our own style but still reserving the feeling of what is full.
That’s why they are different from the other groups in Central Florida. They have participated in several Puerto Rican parades and multiple social activities, such as The San Sebastian Street Festival in Orlando and Miami, The Bomb and Plena Festival in Tampa, The Cultural Festival in Miami and The Hispanic Festival in Jacksonville among many others.
