Album Notes
Roots/Raices 2014, is a journey of Manny Cepeda back to his earliest influences in music. The music of Bomba y Plena was brought to view by Manny's Uncle "Rafael Cepeda Atiles" known as the patriarch of Bomba y Plena in Puerto Rico.

Rafael's influences in Manny since his early childhood molded him into what he is today, a composer, a singer, and a percussionist.

The compositions have being created in honor of the rhythms of Bomba y Plena.

These 7 Plenas and 3 Bombas are to Manny the teaching that his uncle and cousins gave passed on to him. It's time to give back to the roots/raices that molded Manny into a grateful musician of today.

Authentic Beautiful Music
Hello all! I own a men's clothing store here in San Diego, California and I play this CD on the stereo here at work very very oftn, because the music is hi energy with true authentic sounds. My customers love it and always asking "who's music is that, and What the name of that CD".. I tell them that I had the pleasure of meeting Manny before the Grammy Awards and not only is his music beautiful and stimulating, but he is a very nice man and a real gentleman as well. If you are looking for inspiring music for work, social gatherings and parties, I highly recommend this CD. We love it!
