RITMO Y TUMBAO
DRES RAMOS & CUBA ULACIA
In November 2018, I had the honor of sitting down with Dres Ramos and Cuba Ulacia, who are RITMO Y TUMBAO.
On December 23, 2018, this amazingly talented percussion duo released their first genre-defying album, AY DIOS MIO, on Honeycomb Music, the independent label of iconic singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer and Grammy-Award nominated Josh Milan.
Dres and Cuba were kind enough to discuss their passions with me— their musical influences, collaborations with both Grammy-Award winning producer Louie Vega and of course Honeycomb CEO Josh Milan, their supportive brotherhood and work ethic, and all things about their very first album— AY DIOS MIO.
The conversation flowed with musical stories, memories, musings, and lots of laughter over the course of a few hours. So much was shared that the Interview is presented to you in two parts, along with some musical snippets from their AY DIOS MIO album, which was released on Sunday, December 23, 2018 on http://www.honeycombmusicstore.com.
Please enjoy both Part One and Part Two of the Interview by Amanda Frontany:
