Update, 10:45 a.m.: Teo Lopez wrote to Chicagoist to correct us. The group is Afro-Puerto Rican, not Afro-Cuban. Second, the group playing is Lopez's own group, Buya, of which Lopez is the founder and co-director. Buya is from Humboldt Park. Check out the group's Facebook page here.

Here's another video of Buya in action:
