Spanish Harlem Orchestra’s Album Release Party at SOBs (NYC) October 13th

On Wednesday, October 13th the Spanish Harlem Orchestra comes to SOBs, the undisputed home of NY Salsa, for the 9/28 release of their fourth album Viva la Tradicón.

The Spanish Harlem Orchestra is a Grammy-winning 13-piece collective that represents one of the most formidable and authentic Latin jazz combos of today. Though very much a contemporary band, Spanish Harlem Orchestra pays homage to the traditional Salsa sound popularized but the legendary Tito Puente.

The band was started in 2000 by Oscar Hernandez was primarily known for his work as Ruben Blades’ piano-player and musical director. Hernandez has also worked with artists like Celia Cruz & Paul Simon.

Next week’s show is going to be special because it will be the first time ever that the Spanish Harlem Orchestra plays music from the new album!

We are very excited to welcome back our old friend Peter Kruder (Kruder & Dorfmeister, Voom:Voom, Peace Orchestra) for an exclusive DJ set on Saturday, March 20 at Littlefield in Brooklyn.
