LATINO CELEBRATION 2017 – GRAN FIESTA JÍBARA
Saturday, September 30, 2017
2:00 – 3:30 pm
Newark Public Library
Jíbaro music has its roots in the musical forms that came to the island from Spain during the time of colonization and settlement. In it you can hear the influence of eight centuries of Arab domination in Spain, as well as the legacy of the Taíno, the island’s native people. Rubén Figueroa and Conjunto Ritmo Tropical bring an orquesta jíbara to the Library this Saturday. Bring your family, your maracas, güiros, and bongos, and enjoy a gran fiesta jíbara.
