View Website

Celebrate the courageous and resilient Caribbean immigrants who arrived in El Barrio, also known as "Spanish Harlem." Puerto Rican and Dominican by way of the Bronx and Washington Heights, Circa '95—comprising Patty Dukes and Reph—rhyme seamlessly in English and Spanish. They showcase music and stories inspired by their families' migrations to New York City during the golden era of hip-hop, while the African American and Puerto Rican Curtis Brothers explore West Africa's influence on American music from Latin America by mapping rhythms of the African slave trade, from samba, hip-hop, R&B, gospel, and jazz to blues and rock music.
