The maintenance of a sub-culture (for lack of a better expression) in light of the constant onslaught from the dominant one is a task many are unwilling to assume. It is often a thankless job and one fueled by the individual passions of those who take on the task. The Triad concert, which brought together a veritable who's who to grace the stage was an idea that was supported by three individuals who have accepted this responsibility. Richie Rumbero, Louie Laffitte (Latin Beat magazine) and Henry Medina have all left their mark on the Latin music scene and will continue to do so. Please enjoy the fruit of their efforts.
