Cultura Profética

Cultura Profética is a Puerto Rican reggae band that was formed in 1996. Cultura Profética creates a fusion of smooth sounds rooted in reggae with touches of salsa, bomba, ska, jazz, funk, hip hop and additional Afro-Caribbean rhythms.

The band has toured across the island and in venues of Central and North America, and was the only Spanish-speaking band invited to perform at the prestigious Bob Marley Festival in California in 2003, 2004 and 2006.

Cultura Profética worked with Errol Brown, Bob Marley’s legendary producer. The band’s lyrical content emphasizes socio-political and environmental concerns, thus making them a treat to both the ears and the mind.
