BOTH SHOWS ON DECEMBER 10 ARE SOLD OUT
From the mountain tops of Puerto Rico to the street corners of New York City, the Puerto Rican holiday season is about reaffirming cultural identity and rejoicing in the strength of family and community ties. Music is at the center of the festivities, with friends gathering in groups called parrandas, going from home to home singing traditional aguinaldos into the wee hours of the morning. Experience the holiday season Borinquen-style, as the GRAMMY® Award-nominated musicians of Los Pleneros de la 21 present a musical celebration of Afro-Puerto Rican Christmas traditions. Running time: 75 minutes with no intermission
