Pokey LaFarge's journey to this moment has been one of personal and creative evolution. His latest album, "Rhumba Country," showcases LaFarge's dedication to crafting music that radiates pure joy, drawing from diverse influences such as mambo, tropicalia, rocksteadyand mid-century American rock.

Reflecting on his musical evolution, LaFarge shares, "The songs that naturally come to me are upbeat and make you wanna dance or at least bop your head - they're all very colorful. I used to think of my music in dark blue, but now I see it in technicolor."

LaFarge has performed at Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion since early in his career; a life-sized photo of the artist swing-dancing at the festival with an unnamed partner, is part of the mural surround inside the Birthplace of Country Music Museum's Immersion Theater exhibit.
