Los Piratas del Monte is a performance group dedicated to Latin traditional and popular music. Composed of musicians of Colombian and Cuban background from the US latin and afro-beat group Umoja Orchestra, performances reflect a deep love for the music of Latin America.  The musicians’ years of experience have allowed them to create a diverse repertoire which includes son, bolero, cumbia, merengue, bachata, salsa, vallenato, chicha, and ranchera.  Audiences can appreciate the rich and relaxing sounds of Dominican love songs or move to the rhythms of Cuban and Colombian dance music.

The ensemble is composed of Natalia Perez (vocals/percussion), Johnny Frias (Bongos), Juliana Jimenez (percussion), Ernesto (dance), Sebastian Lopez (guitar/vocals), and David Borenstein (saxophone)

“Funds raised from the performance will be split among two organizations. The Unity Rural Music Project, a music education project initiated by members of Los Piratas del Monte and other Chinese musicians will be visiting 9 rural schools in Sichuan, Yunnan, and Guangxi this summer to hold free summer camps, donate materials, and train teachers in order to establish music classes. ‘Yi Dian Yi Di’ is a grassroots foundation facilitating sustainable development projects in rural Chinese areas, such as building solar energy greenhouses and bathhouses in Qinghai.”
