Bugalu Foundation

The Bugalu Foundation aim to move your body and soul!

This nine/ten piece powerhouse play a style of music influenced by Latin legends such as Ray Barretto, Mongo Santamaria, Tito Puente and Eddie Palmieri. Their sound is particularly evocative of the 70’s era of ‘Our Latin Thing’, when the musical traditions of New York’s east and west Harlem come together in an irresistible fusion of Jazz, Funk and Soul mixed with the Hispanic beats of ’El Barrio’; music to move body and soul.
