Frankie Leroux and Band: "Donde no Alcanza mi Verso" is a Faithful, Funky Recital of the Cultura Profetica Classic

Big shout out to The New Beatmaker favourite Frankie Leroux for sending over this video recently. Here, Frankie's senior recital band perform "Donde no Alcanza mi Verso" by Cultura Profetica.

Frankie is a Graduate of the world famous Berklee College of Music in Boston, a college with alumni including Quincy Jones, Aimee Mann and Roy Hargrove, amongst others.

In addition he is a drummer, manager, producer and videographer; and he is part of one of my favourite new acts in years, LowTone society, who combine jazz, reggae, funk, hip hop and more with class and virtuosity.      

This performance, which is faithful to the original song, shows off the depth of talent and diversity within the recital band, which includes several LowTone members.  I can't wait to see and hear more from them.  Props to Frankie and everyone else involved in what was clearly a wonderful event.

Ernesto "Bebo" Rodriguez: vocals
Kalani Trinidad: flute
