Latin Legends Presented in Free Concert Series at
David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center
Line Up Includes Tipica 73, and Marc Ribot y los Cubanos Postizos
A series of free concerts specifically designed to celebrate New York City-based Latin music, ¡Vaya 63! continues at Lincoln Center’s David Rubenstein Atrium on February 4th with Típica 73 supported by DJ Jose Calderon. Originally founded by members of the Ray Barreto Orchestra, Típica 73 revitalizes and brings the essence of a real 1970s salsa dance party to Lincoln Center. The performance begins at 7 p.m. and is free to the public.
The series is curated by NYU Professor of Music Business Carlos Chirinos, who worked with Lincoln Center to generate programming that would effectively reflect and engage the Latino community. Professor Chirinos, a native of Venezuela, selected artists with deep roots in the New York City Latin music scene, and also reflective of its evolution since the 1960s. The February 4th event also celebrates the launch of the Music and Social Change Lab at NYU, an innovation and creativity hub that explores ways to promote community engagement and social good through music.
Said Jordana Phokompe, Director of the David Rubenstein Atrium, “We are thrilled to partner with NYU and guest curator Carlos Chirinos on this series that honors the artists and torchbearers who are part of our city’s rich history of Latin music
!Vaya63! performances will be accompanied by projections of classic Latin album cover art on the Atrium’s 42-foot wide screen, selected by Pablo Yglesias, author of the book Cocinando: 50 Years of Latin Album Cover Art. Each evening’s DJ will be playing vintage and new Latin music exclusively on vinyl.
Marc Ribot y los Cubanos Postizos concludes the series on March 3. This ultimate party band feverishly cooks shows around arrangements of Cuban bandleader Arsenio Rodriguez, an innovator of the son montuno, with a performance that marks a departure from traditional forms to explore the progressive and experimental sounds of contemporary Latin dance music.
