Grab your friends and bring your dancing shoes – evenings of live Latin music and dancing are returning to the High Line this summer! Friends of the High Line is pleased to partner with HAI and Hudson Guild to host some of New York City’s best Latin bands at the High Line, transforming the park into an open-air dance floor at sunset.

Part of High Line Live! – a performance series at the High Line – ¡Arriba! nights in June, July, and August feature different live acts bringing their own energy, musical style, and flavor to our community dance parties.

Orlando Marin, the Last Mambo King, and his dynamic band from the Bronx kick off ¡Arriba! with traditional salsa and merengue rhythms that get visitors of all ages shaking to the beat of the timbales drums.

Liliana Araújo and her lively band Forró da Madame heat up ¡Arriba! with Brazilian forró, a popular dance and musical style marked by accordion, triangle, and zabumba bass drum beats.
