Sponsored by 88.5 KPLU.

Since its establishment in 2004, Picoso has evolved from a trio playing on the streets of Seattle into a smoking seven piece band that regularly lights up venues around the northwest and beyond. Grounded in the Afro- Latino sounds of the Caribbean, Picoso’s 100% original music spans a dynamic spectrum from traditional Cuban son and cha cha to dubbed out cumbia and reggaeton, and of course their mainstay, salsa. Picoso makes any event a party, and whether in clubs, festivals, or private functions Picoso brings a fire that is sure to get things moving.

Integrating a fully capable horn section with hard hitting rhythms, the dance floor is blazing from the first note. The lyrical delivery, led by Puerto Rican cantante (singer) Alfonso Gonzalez and backed up by 7-part harmonies is both passionate and playful, drawing in audiences like a warm hearth in winter. Time and again Picoso proves their ability to control the stage with facility and to send their audience home full of joy and asking for more.
