Music on the Porch: Orquestra GarDel

March 29 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

 

With a dizzying repertoire that includes salsa dura, jazz, and Afro-Cuban-inflected originals, Durham’s Orquesta GarDel is one of the most respected salsa groups in the region. Co-founded in 2006 by UNC ethnomusicology professor David Garcia, the group boasts a dynamic roster that connects Latino/a performers with musicians from various cultural backgrounds.

Completamente multinacional, pero con un  sabor especial de Carolina del Norte, Orquesta GarDel emociona al público con una experiencia enérgica de música de baile latina. La gran orquesta de trece miembros reproduce el formato clásico de un conjunto Nuyorican de salsa dura repleto de metales, percusión y coros, con en sus propios arreglos de canciones de los grandes artistas de salsa, cumbia y merengue. 

Bring a picnic blanket and stay for a while! This event is free and open to the public; special thanks to our co-sponsors, the Latina/o Studies Program at UNC-Chapel Hill. Parking is free after 5:00 pm in the Park Place parking lot, approximately two blocks from the Love House & Hutchins Forum.
