Friday, June 8, 5:00pm–10:00pm
Latin Festival is the grand finale of Dance Party, a series hosted and produced by Talia Castro-Pozo. Festivities start at 5pm and continue until 10pm.
An innovative exponent of Latin jazz, salsa and pop music for five decades, the Grammy-nominated New Swing Sextet plays Cha Cha and Boogaloo tunes that capture the excitement and turbulence of 1960’s New York. Renowned Venezuelan percussionist Luisito Quintero, whose 3rd Element project was nominated in 2015 for the Best Latin Album Grammy, infuses salsa music with Afro-Caribbean rhythms to create a fresh and dynamic sound.
