CINEMUSICA CITY! celebrates magical sites — part movie house, part concert halls — like the Hunts Point Palace and Teatro Puerto Rico in Mott Haven where brilliant artists like Machito, Tito Puente, and Grandmaster Caz as well as popular films and local vaudevillesque performers revolutionized the way we dance, sing, see and hear.
CINEMUSICA CITY! features also features live performance by P.R.O.D.I.G.Y. New York, SBK St. Mary’s Youth Salsa Dancers, the Fat Afro Latin Jazz Cats and more.
