Latin Music In Hell's Kitchen, a History
Produced by Mike Freeman
For over thirty years, numerous Latin music record distributors dotted the landscape of 10th Avenue from 42nd to 52nd streets. This concert production focuses on the once-vibrant Latin music record industry that no longer exists in Hell’s Kitchen as well as the tradition of the vibraphone in Latin music. Historical commentary and photograph displays are a part of the performance. Legendary guests include percussionist Ray Mantilla and bongocero/singer Jose Mangual Jr.
