Biography

Alegria Tipica was born in Lynn, Ma in the 1980's. It leader is Omar Fernandez (he also is the Saxophonist). Even from his childhood he was immersed in Merengue Tipico. Not until the birth of his son in 1979 did he start interpreting his brand of Merengue Tipico. The 3 words that describe this group best is NON-STOP DANCING. Allegria Tipica's theme is " If the people don't dance, then the band shouldn't get paid " Take a listen to this group and feel free to leave some feed back.
