Based out of Bloomfield NJ, we play mostly original music that we blend with Rock, Jazz and Latin rhythms. In our music you can hear the heart of the Caribbean, the peasant chant, the voice of those speaking against injustice accompanied by Afro Caribbean rhythms.

Carlos Frias and Circulo Social kicked off popular the Patterson NJ Jazz Festival an recently earned the honor of opening for Tito Puente Jr. and has sold out stellar performances at Rutgers Institute of Jazz Studies Clements’ Place Jazz.
