El Laberinto del Coco is the Bomba Fusion project of Héctor “Coco” Barez who is best known as Calle 13’s percussionist.
In the grand tradition of Rafael Cortijo, Ismael Rivera and William Cepeda, Coco is taking our little island’s Bomba Puertorriqueña out into the world again. El Laberinto gets into Bomba Jazz, Bomba Rock, Bomba Hip-Hop, and straight-ahead Bomba.
Every El Laberinto show is basically an areíto, the traditional Indigenous Taíno gathering where we sing, drum and dance together. It’s one of the ways we express family, faith, community and love as Puerto Ricans.

America needs this because modern life in the United States has lost many of the community traditions that hold us together. Let’s send Philadelphia some brotherly love, Puerto Rican style: El Laberinto del Coco.
