We Like It Like That! A Boogaloo Celebration at Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival
(Published: July 21, 2015)

Damrosch Park Bandshell - Thursday, August 6 at 7 PM

Latin boogaloo is a product of the melting pot of New York City, a colorful expression of 1960s Afro-Latino soul, rocketing to popularity from the streets of El Barrio, New York's East Harlem, and being reborn today and introduced across the city and points beyond. Taking its title from the boogaloo anthem made famous by bandleader and pianist Pete Rodriguez, the Damrosch Park concert pairs pioneering legends with today's practitioners who are claiming and reinventing the sound for new audiences. Boogaloo innovator Joe Bataan and his band roll out irresistible hits from the early days. Ray Lugo's good-time, hip-swinging originals pay homage to the style's giants, including his special guest, Latin Music Hall of Famer Richie Ray, one of Latin music's most influential pianists, and Pete Rodriguez, in one of his first concert appearances in 40 years.

New York's ABAKUÁ Afro-Latin Dance Company offers works from its rich repertoire choreographed by founder Frankie Martinez, as in-demand DJ Turmix-who has played an important role in the genre's resurgence with his monthly BOOGALOO! Party at club Nublu-spins some of the era's Latin gems.

7 PM - August 6
DAMROSCH PARK is located on West 62nd Street, between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenue.
