Afro Latin Soul Presents: Spanish Harlem Night

Harlem was notoriously gritty in the 70’s, and this is a unique place where Hip-Hop and Salsa emerged around the same time to reflect the culture of immigrants of African and Latin descent. With talents like Hector Lavoe and Joe Bataan, Salsa and Boogaloo took over the Latin clubs by storm, forever changing the musical landscape. Though this was the golden era for Latin Soul in the Big Apple, there has been a revivial with artists like Anthony Almonte from Grupo Arcano and the Afro Latin Soul music series (NYC-MTL) that have been reminding us that Afro-Latin musical expression is still alive.

Afro-Latin Soul is back for the 9th time with Spanish Harlem Night, a tribute to New York salsa and boogaloo from the 70’s. Elementality is a proud sponsor of this event starring Anthony Almonte (NYC/Grupo Arcano) with the Afro Latin Soul House Band: David Ryshpan (Musical Director/Piano), Anthony Pageot (Drums), Mark Haynes (Bass), Ahau Marino (percussion), Modibo Keita (trombone) and Hichem Khalfa (Trumpet).

They will be also joined by Soneros del Heavy (Rila & David Sanchez) and DJ Andy Williams (The Goods). It’s going down at Club Lambi (4465 Boul. Saint-Laurent) on Friday May 31st at 9:30 PM.

Afro Latin Soul is a joint events series brought to you by  multilingual rapper and producer Lou Piensa (MTL/Nomadic Massive) and Frank Diggz (NYC/San Juan Hill).
