Atabal Con El Ritmo Del Caribe
Musically speaking, Atabal is best described as the direct influence of Africa in the Caribbean. Salsa, calypso, danzón, plena, bomba are just some of the rhythms that appear in this Puerto Rican group. They've placed drums as the forefront musical element in all their works and recordings. Today they have also integrated other instruments like : the Puerto Rican cuatro, a guitar, a bass, a trumpet, and a sax. To complete their unique sound, considered by critics as both traditional and modern, they use voices in harmony when presenting their songs accompanied by all these instruments as well as when they sing a capella . Atabal has traveled extensively for 17 years throughout Central and South America, Europe and the United States. They have also participated in concerts with El Gran Combo, Los Papines, Andy Montañez, Giovanni Hidalgo, Un solo pueblo, Tata Guines, Franco de Vita, José José, and many others.
