With Cuban soul and a swinging, fearless tropical sound, this trombone-driven power salsa octet presides over our signature Latin dance party. At the helm 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.

Opening set by DJ Bongohead at 7:00 pm

Presented in collaboration with the NYU Music and Social Change Lab

Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
