GRAN FIESTA JÍBARA - this Saturday @ The Newark Public Library

Come celebrate the music and the people of Puerto Rico this Saturday at the Newark Public Library and learn how you can support relief efforts on the island.

Saturday, September 30, 2017     
2:00 – 3:30 pm
Centennial Hall
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.

*This event is free and open to the public *
