With Cuban soul and a swinging, fearless tropical sound, this trombone-driven power salsa octet, Ola Fresca, preside over our signature Latin dance party, ¡Vaya 63!, at Lincoln Center's David Rubenstein Atrium. At the helm of the group is Cuban-American singer, songwriter, arranger, and producer Jose Conde, who conjures “a state of harmonic coexistence across conventions” (Time Out New York), spiking Cuban son with New Orleans funk, Nigerian Afrobeat, James Brown rhythms, Haitian compas, New York City boogaloo, and jam-band flights.
DJ Bongohead kicks of the night at 7:00 pm and plays between and after the band’s two sets.
Presented in collaboration with the NYU Music and Social Change Lab
Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. It WILL "sell out", so get there early.
