Aurora & Zon del Barrio, featuring Fania All-Star Nicky Marrero, brings its classic Afro-Boricua foot-stomping, funk-based, classic salsa, plena, merengue, bomba and boogalu to the corners of the barrios where Latinos live, work, and play.
Creative, musically diverse in taste while resourceful in survival, Latinos from the barrio zones have sophisticated tastes in music that are not relegated to one particular genre. Zon del Barrio emerges as one of the few orchestras to express the varied genres of Latin music from the African Diaspora and the urban streets of New York. This group of veteran and young musicians is led by music journalist and historian Aurora Flores with musical direction provided by David Fernandez, a multi-instrumentalist who defers to his almost encyclopedic knowledge of the classics for his creative arrangements.
