Los Pleneros de la 21 (LP21) is the premier performing ensemble of Afro-Puerto Rican Bomba and Plena based in the United States.  Founded in 1983, the group consists of three generations of venerated traditional and professional musicians, incomparable dancers and passionate educators.  Together they fuse the “down home” Afro-Puerto Rican traditions with contemporary and urban sounds to showcase the versatility and complexities of the Latino experience in the United States.

Full ensemble performances with reeds, timbales, bass and piano accompany the traditional percussion, chants and dance troupe. Performances feature original compositions, and fresh arrangements of Bomba and Plena repertoires.
