Business

SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY JAN 24, 2020

Enjoy Puerto Rican traditional music with Totín Agosto Arará y la Liga Rumbera at the Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center on Sunday, February 2 at 7pm. Known extensively in the island’s Afro-Puerto Rican and Afro-Cuban music circles, Totín Agosto Arará has been singing, and composing rumbas, bombas and plenas for decades with groups like Los Majaderos de Cachete Maldonado, Rumbaraza, La Liga Rumbera and Yuba Iré.  The group will be led by the exceptional Puerto Rican master musician Beto Torrens.  After serious health complications in recent years, including the difficult period after Hurricane María, Totin is back, stronger than ever. His life story is one of redemption and resilience. Rumba is his cure, giving an appropriate title to his first solo album: “Orgánico y Medicinal” (Organic and Medicinal).  This historic album includes 7 original compositions by Totin Agosto and two classics. Produced by Discos Omó Ifá (Beto Torrens y Rafael Maya) Orgánico y Medicinal came to fruition after three live recording sessions at Pasillo Sonoro in Río Piedras, Puerto Rico with the help of sound engineer Antonio Caraballo.

Tickets are $15 for members and $18 for the general public.  Advance tickets are available online at WSLR.org or by calling 1-800-838-3006.
