In this episode of Jazz at LACMA: Meet the Musicians, Mitch Glickman speaks with Edgar Modesto, leader of the LA-based band Buyepongo. Buyepongo has created a vibrant polyrhythmic sound that seamlessly fuse cumbia, merengue, punta, jazz and funk to create their own genre called "Buyangú" With deep roots in South and Central America, Buyepongo draw heavily from the Latino musical culture. The group's pulse and power is built around the drum and guacharaca giving them an upbeat tropical flare.
