Montuneano means "Groovin' or "Swingin'" and is a derivative of the word montuno, which in musical terms, is the "body" of the music.  In a musical arrangement, the montuno follows the introduction and precedes the interlude and mambo.  A montuno is where the "groove" or "swing" resides in a song, as defined by Nuyorican master percussionist, arranger and composer Chembo Corniel.  According to Chembo, “montuno is the basic groove in the middle of the song where everything is happening, everything is swinging, and where the flavor is at”. 

Montuneando is a state of being, an attitude, a place of freedom. Montuneando con Marysol continues a long legacy of programming at WBAI, bringing music and issues of the Latino community to the FM airwaves. WBAI has, for over 40 years, recognized NYC demographics and aggressively sought out programs of cultural, social, and political interest to the deserving NYC Latino community. Tune in for the matters that matter and the music that moves you!
