Yasser Tejeda & Palotré is an infectiously rhythmic and cutting-edge group that originated in the Dominican Republic and is a rising star in the Afro-Dominican Jazz scene. Palotré's debut album Mezclansa (2009) was dubbed one of the "100 essential recordings of Dominican music" by Dominican Republic's Association of Art Writers (Acroarte). Palotré has performed extensively throughout Dominican Republic and is currently working on their second album. They continue to inspire listeners to explore their roots and aim to share this traditional culture with wider audiences.
