The Jacksonville based Afro-Cuban and Salsa 10-piece orchestra, LPT, gave us a live studio performance. The group formed in 2015 and realized that playing salsa music was a way to share the diversity of the area with a new, young audience; while honoring the classic sound of salsa.
Their debut album, Sin Parar, is being released Friday, and they are celebrating at their sold-out concert at 1904 Music Hall Friday night.
