Eddie Palmieri La Perfecta, Tony Vega, Flaco Navaja
Salsa lovers, get ready for a Sunday evening soireé in the park with a few salsa legends. Be sure to bring your dancing shoes.
From the City Parks event listing:
Rarely do two figures of such prominence get to perform together; however, Eddie Palmieri, the New York pioneer of Latin jazz and salsa music, will join Tony Vega, the culture-shifting salsa bandleader and singer, for a very special night at SummerStage 2018. Being the first artist to win a Grammy Award for best Latin Recording in 1975, Palmieri is regarded as one of the most iconic Puerto Rican artists to emerge from the New York scene. Bronx native Flaco Navaja is a singer, poet and actor, who combines singing, beat-boxing, and spoken word. He has toured nationally and internationally, including with the Russell Simmons’ Tony Award-winning DEF POETRY JAM.
