Sr. Langosta is the musical project from composer and guitar player Jorge Andrés Ferreras. Taking the idea of jazz and mixing it with other musical styles; afro-caribbean influence rhythms, the psychedelia of rock, with funk grooves and instrumental improvisation.
Sr. Langosta was formed in 2013, with Gamaliel Santiago on drums and Manuel Rodriguez on electric bass. Under the musical direction of Ferreras, the group recorded their debut album at Casa Fantasmes in Santurce, Puerto Rico. The homonymous album was released in April 2014, getting a good reception from the public. Thanks to this, Sr. Langosta started playing around Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Panama; where they played couple of nights at Danilos Jazz Club, and gave a master class about their compositions with the Danilo Perez Foundation.
The band closed the year ranking at #7 for 2014's best independent music by Puerto Rico Indie. The following year of 2015 involved a media/promotional tour in Colombia and California, where they presented their work on various radio stations.
2016 was a very ambitious year for them as they recorded and produced the second album and expanded the group. They are joined by Alexandra Rivera on keyboards and Timothy Cooper on percussion and vibraphone, as well as a few other musicians. The new material has a fresh sound, with wider instrumentation and deeper arrangement.
Aside from working on the album, Sr. Langosta has been actively performing around Puerto Rico and in Mexico.
