Salsa in Soundview: A Look at the History of Latin Music in the BoogieDown

New York Times' David Gonzalez posted a City Room piece yesterday detailing how Latin music was flourishing even as the Bronx was burning.

Gonzalez covers the history of Latin jammers Grupo Folklorico (whose formal name is Grupo Folklorico y Experimental Nuevayorquino — the New York Folkloric and Experimental Group).

All but two of the surviving members of Grupo will be playing at a reunion concert at Hostos College tomorrow, 11/1, at 7:30pm. Tickets range from $25 to $35. Click here for more information.
