los bohemios

Los Bohemios is an acoustic ensemble performing Cuban Son, Salsa, and Boleros; Bossa Nova; Latin Rock; Latin Jazz and Mexican Mariachi repertoire. The group features Ricardo Peña on vocals and guitar or requinto, Amy Biondo on vocals and hand percussion, Ed Edwards on guitar and vocals, Mark Diamond on upright bass, and Dean Kielian on congas and bongos. They offer beautiful 3-part harmony, Spanish guitars, acoustic bass and Latin percussion to create danceable salsa rhythms in the style of Buena Vista Social Club or Gloria Estefan, and romantic ballads in the style of Los Panchos. Their impeccable musicianship and diverse repertoire move audiences in concerts, clubs, weddings and private events alike. The band can perform with 3, 4, or 5 people, and also as a larger group, with up to 11 musicians, including full horn and percussion sections.

“Amy Biondo may not be Latina by birth, however, her heart beats Latin rhythms as she has been enamored by the music of América Latina all her life and her singing is the ideal addition to the group, reminiscent of the albums of Eydie Gormé with Trio Los Panchos …

"The harmonizing of Ricardo, Amy and Ed [is] seamless… Los Bohemios inject freshness to their renditions that will captivate even the most discerning listeners … [the album is] superb from start to finish. This is an auspicious debut for a group that evokes romance and at times makes you want to get up and dance.”
