Buena Trova Social Club is a musical duo of Madeleine Zayas and Brandon Vance and their compañeros who share a passion for world art and culture through music. They are excited to have their public debut at La Peña. Their music is a blend of traditional Latin American/Caribbean folk music and contemporary flavored musical idioms, with covers and original songs. Well-crafted vocal harmonies and acoustic instrumentation in combination with Afro/Caribbean percussion, flute and other instruments, enliven their songs. Their songs are inspired by Nueva Canción artists such as Silvio Rodriguez and Juan Luis Guerra.
