When the world was hit hard by COVID-19 in 2020, congo player Chris Nettuno wanted to brighten up the days with fulfilling music. And so, he did along with a group of multicultural talented musicians eager to get started on a brand new album. The band, Canelita Sabrosa, created a self-titled, uplifting, ensemble of songs produced by five-time Grammy winner Dru Castro (India.Aire, Usher, Childish Gambino) along with the band’s two-time Grammy-winning guitarist Julio Miranda and drummer Chunky Sounds.
“Canelita Sabrosa means tasty cinnamon and what that means is we’re not rock, jazz, smooth jazz, we’re the tasty cinnamon in between it all.” – Chris Nettuno
The album dropped this year in May on the band’s Canelita Sabrosa Record label. It’s refreshing and indeed a delight, especially if you love to dance!
