Join the Bryant Park Dance Party for Cumbia Dance Night with LaMar NYC, featuring Nilko Andrea and Maria Raquel!

Dance Party, hosted and produced by Talia Castro-Pozo, includes superb bands and expert dance instruction for extraordinary dancing experiences each Wednesday evening. Learn the steps from 6pm - 7pm and then test out your new moves to live music from 7pm to 8:30pm.

LaMar is a live music project that combines the fiery sounds of Colombia, Spain, Brazil and Cuba into one unforgettable NYC groove-centric party. The group consists of singer & guitarist Nilko Andreas, bassist Matt Geraghty, and Reid Andres on percussion. Colombian / American classical guitarist and composer Nilko Andreas Guarin has been praised as an “electrifying performer” by Backstage New York. Andreas has been captivating audiences as a soloist, composer and chamber musician since his 2009 Carnegie Hall debut. Colombian vocalist Maria Raquel mixes her powerful voice with rhythms from Caribbean, the Pacific, and the mountains. Her repertoire includes boleros, cumbias, salsa, and son cubano.
