Roberto Pla

22nd April 2012


DATE CHANGE! Roberto Pla appears at the arts centre on SUNDAY 22ND APRIL, not Saturday 21st April as previously advertised here and in the Colchester Arts Centre brochure.

The undisputable guvnor of Latin Music in the UK. Born in Barranquilla, Colombia, Roberto studied music at the National University of Bogota, going on to tour Latin America and the States with Orquesta Lucho Bermudez, Colombia’s leading big band. After session work in New York, he moved to London and co-founded the UK’s first salsa band, Valdez.

After a quarter of a century of globe-trotting and international residencies, his incredible, barn-storming dance band is still raising the roof at clubs and festivals, led by the legendary maestro himself on timbales.
