Thirty-year veteran percussionist Sammy DeLeon and his crew love sharing the history and characteristics of their music with audiences. Latin jazz, salsa and merengue – the latter originating in the Dominican Republic – comprise a highly danceable set led by DeLeon, once described by Latin music legend Tito Puente as “the hottest and most innovative timbalero.” Ticket holders may enjoy a 6:30 p.m. salsa dance workshop led by instructor Mambo Marci. Presented in partnership with BombaRica and made possible in part by the National Association of Latino Arts and Culture (NALAC).
