El Rey del Timbal: Tito Puente's Centennial Celebration
Join CENTRO and Hostos Community College in celebrating the life and legacy of the great Puerto Rican musician, Tito Puente! April 20th, 2023 would have been Tito's birthday and we're celebrating in style as we dive into his impact on the American music scene and explore the variety of music he produced across genres. He brought Afro-Cuban and Caribbean sounds like mambo, merengue, and cha-cha, to mainstream audiences. As one of the most influential artists of his time, Puente engaged and supported his community of Spanish Harlem, he also provided a platform for women singers of the time!
This event will be hosted at Hostos Community College 500 Grand Concourse The Bronx, NY 10451.
