Sounds of L.A. 2019 kicks off with the Getty debut of Grammy Award-nominated Los Pleneros de la 21. Founded in 1983 by NEA National Heritage Fellow, Juan Gutiérrez-Rodriguez, LP21 is an East Harlem-based performing arts ensemble and nonprofit organization created to foster appreciation of Puerto Rico's extraordinary cultural expressions. Known for complex, multi-part vocal harmonies set against bomba and plena rhythms, the group has been praised for "perfectly arranged" tunes producing "exhilaratingly deep Latino explorations of Afro-Caribbean grooves."
