Jose is the bassist and band leader of Orchesta El Macabeo, a Puerto Rican salsa group created in 2008 in Trujillo Alto and part of their particular sound is based on the fact that the group is made up mostly of musicians who played in rock, punk, ska and reggae groups.

We chatted about the band’s music, his record label Discos de Hoy, and performing globally, including the 2018 BU Global Music Festival, where the band will be performing in its 10th anniversary tour. 

The BU Global Music Festival takes place in October on the campus of Boston University, in partnership with the BU Global Arts Initiative.
