Featuring a special opening set from Yasser Tejeda & Jonathan Troncoso.
Join us for a concert with Tito Matos and La Maquina Insular. Visiting from Puerto Rico, Tito Matos is an important percussionist, bandleader, and community arts organizer. Having worked with big-name artists like Eddie Palmieri, Ricky Martin, and Gloria Estefan, he is also well known for his celebrated group Viento de Agua, which puts a contemporary spin on traditional styles. For this concert, Matos presents a special NYC edition of his plena group La Maquina Insular, which dominates the Afro-Boricua musical traditions with seemingly effortless mastery and guarantees a party atmosphere, taking the audience back to the street corners of the barrios of Puerto Rico.
Let us know you're coming.

Presented by the Jazz Foundation of America, with partial support from the National Endowment for the Arts, NYS Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M.Cuomo and the NYS Legislature, and from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
