Fuerza Positiva

The 'La Fuerza Positiva' formed in the fall of 97 in Bronx, N.Y. It started out with a few members who played various Afro, Cuban, and Latino rhythms on percussion instruments. They joined forces with a bassist and piano player with diversified musical backgrounds such as R & B, Rock, and Jazz. The members had a vision that combining the various different elements would create a unique and appealing sound. And they were right! They all had a distinct purpose in mind which was to generate good feelings and to put forth a positive message through their music. It was soon after that the brass and woodwinds were added to give the group it's over all sound. The name 'La Fuerza Positiva' means positive force and it's members are united together to bring about a change through their music.
