Dominican accordionist El Prodigio brings his syncopated merengue playing to the Armory in an explosion of sound and joy. He and fellow band members introduce us to the multiple styles of merengue playing found in the Dominican Republic. El Prodigio, known for his contemporary and improvisational compositions, will travel through some of the rich musical styles of accordion merengue from the “güira” and the “tambura” and to the “perico ripiao.” Joined by his ensemble band, El Prodigio delivers an updated contemporary sound with harmonic and rhythmic colors resulting in an updating of this infectious musical form.

Park Avenue Armory lanzará su serie 2020 Artists Studio con un programa del acordeonista dominicano El Prodigio, quien presentará una pluralidad de estilos de música merengue típica de República Dominicana en dos funciones, a las 7 p.m. y a las 9 p.m. en la histórica sala Veterans Room. El Prodigio, famoso por sus composiciones modernas y técnicas de improvisación, hará un recorrido por algunos de los ritmos musicales más sabrosos del merengue de acordeón, desde la “güira” y la “tambura” hasta el “perico ripiao.” Junto a su grupo musical, El Prodigio ofrece melodías contemporáneas y modernas, llenas de colores armónicos y rítmicos, que se traducen en una nueva cara de este estilo musical tan pegadizo.
