Latin Music

April 10 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

Enjoy the last day of Library Week with some latin music played by Segunda Quimbamba. Segunda Quimbamba is a Jersey City-based percussion and dance ensemble that performs authentic Bomba and Plena, the drum music of Puerto Rico. The ensemble was founded by director Juan Cartagena and his wife Nanette Hernandez as Los Pleneros de la Segunda (The Pleneros from Second Street) in 1989 during the Christmas season to preserve the Puerto Rican tradition of caroling called parrandas. Limit to 49 people. Please wear a face covering.
