Composer, singer and percussionist Miosoti Alvarado "La MiO" leads a group of versatile musicians to give shape to Piquete: a musical project with Afro Boricua roots, which aims to strike a balance between the sensuality and rudeness of street music both in its aesthetics, theme and musicality. Contemporary sounds of Caribbean and Brazilian music, neo soul and hip hop meet traditional instrumentation creating a powerful, flavorful and cutting edge fusion. Piquete, established in 2018, in Santurce-Puerto Rico, has called its sound Neo Plena and Bomba Groove, demonstrating the versatility of Boricua urban music.
