Rumba en El Bronx

The Bronx has always had it's fair share of rumbas y rumberos. At one time, you could find a rumba on any number of blocks..like Kelly St. or Parks...like St. James. Now for the most part they are relegated to indoor venues like the Sport's Bar on Castle Hill. The drummers, to their credit do their best to keep the outdoor free feel of the real rumba despite the surroundings. Here, members of Ilu Aye and Chino and Cece tear it up. Recorded 4/10/05.
