ACROSS THE STREET FROM  MARCUS GARVEY PARK

In 1974, during the heyday of the New York salsa explosion, the Fania All Stars were invited to perform in front of 80,000 people at a stadium in Zaire, Africa. Featuring exquisite performances by Celia Cruz, Héctor Lavoe and the All Stars' many other virtuoso players and vocalists, the concert was captured on film. Unfortunately, this precious footage has been available only in substandard versions, quickly becoming a rare collector's item... until now.

Join ImageNation Outdoors, the Historic Harlem Parks Coalition Film Festival, the Latin Alternative Music Conference and Fania Records for a special screening of this digitally remastered treasure! Restored to its former glory, Fania All Stars Live In Africa captures a particularly soulful moment in the history of Latin music. Don't miss this one.

ELASTIC BOND | LIVE FROM MIAMI!

With influences from all across the musical map, some classic and some contemporary, Elastic Bond's groove includes diverse elements reminiscent of Los Amigos Invisibles, A Tribe Called Quest, Julieta Venegas and The Black Keys. Elastic Bond is part of new generation of multicultural Latinos who incorporate music from the past in order to make music for the future. With sultry female vocals reminiscent of Amy Winehouse or Little Dragon, Elastic Bond brings together a retro-futuristic combination of folkloric rhythms and electronic beats.

JOIN US AT THE AFTER PARTY FOR A FREE DRINK AT PRIMEONE16 STEAKHOUSE, 2257 First Ave. @ 116th Street!
