Very Be Careful

Bands that use Latin rhythms at their core are common -- especially here int he US. However, most try to blend those rhythms with – rock, pop, hip-pop, etc. It is a trend that started in the 1960's with performers like Santana. However, few US based groups try to stick to their musical roots. One such group that does is the LA based group Very Be Careful. The driving force behind the group are two US born sons of Colombian immigrant parents. These guys play vallenato -- a traditionally Caribbean based music from the coast of Colombia. Recently, the group was featured on PRI's The World. You can hear the report here:
