Domingos en Arte: Los Hacheros
July 23, 2017
7:30 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm)
Brooklyn’s Los Hacheros are modern-day torchbearers of the Golden Age of Latin music, reviving folkloric styles like son montuno, guaracha, and salsa, and often combining them with bomba, a fiery rhythm from the mountains of Puerto Rico. Their debut album Pilón was acclaimed for “…its solid arrangements and lively original songs [that] have impressed old-school salseros and young music fans alike.” Their sophomore album, Bambulaye, was recorded live to vintage analog tape, giving it a raw, warm sound similar to that of the Latin legends who have inspired the group.
Domingos en Arte, a summer music and dance series presented by Melaza Music, AMP Concerts, and the National Hispanic Cultural Center in the NHCC’s Fountain Courtyard, enters its second season beginning in June. We have invited some of our musician friends, from the local community and outside, for lively community get-togethers right next to the beautiful Rio Grande Bosque. Spend Sunday evenings from 7:30 pm to 10 pm enjoying live music, drinks, and delicious Latin cuisine with family and friends in this enchanting courtyard setting, with one or all of the groups who will be performing this season.
