Event Description
De Tierra Caliente DeCafe Concert

After four years touring Argentina, Brazil and Colombia as bassist in several Latin bands, Bronson Tennis returned to Philadelphia to form his own band. De Tierra Caliente: a fusion of Brazilian, Caribbean and American rhythms with catchy melodies and unaffected lyrics. While traveling and learning the languages of Caribbean and Brazilian musicians, Bronson began to mix his American roots with Afro-Latino rhythms to inspire an undeniably fun North/South American dance party.

De Tierra Caliente bridges Philadelphia's boricua (Puerto Rican) and gringo communities, as Bronson is joined by Puerto Rican percussionist and Philly Salsa icon, Edwin "Papo Buda" Rosado, who for decades has performed with local groups such as the Latin Playboys and Saboricua and has appeared with the world-renowned Gran Combo de Puerto Rico. Papo and his red-headed gringo apprentice Tim Leslie are an unlikely duo of bearded percussionists, laying down powerful Latin grooves that make it impossible to stay in your seat.

De Tierra Caliente delivers the savor and spice of warm-weather Latin American countries to audiences in the northeastern US.


Doors open at 7:30pm, music begins at 8:15pm.
