Folklore Urbano Orchestra is the powerhouse ensemble of Colombian pianist, composer, and artistic director Pablo Mayor. Featuring Mayor’s renowned arrangements and collaborative work with songwriters like Nick Chavarria and Cruz “Chino” Melao, an icon of the historic era of NYC salsa, the orchestra's latest album, El Barrio Project-SALSA, takes listeners to the heart of the historic birthplace of salsa: Spanish Harlem and the Bronx. El Barrio Project is Pablo Mayor’s ongoing exploration of the rich cultural enclaves that define NYC.
Video from the performance will be made available to the public on the Rockefeller Brothers Fund website and social media.
