”La Barriada is one of the most well-rehearsed bands I have listened to and seen from Cuba, with a modern and fresh sound, and a rhythm section that is steaming with energy and new thinking. One of the group’s strongest sides is the three lead singers who sing, entertain, and make the concert into a real show. La Barriada is pure and simple energy of Afro-Cuban rhythms with tasteful popular features.” 
(Janne Bogdan, producer at Soneros Records)
