Monday Sept 18th: Spanish Harlem Orchestra -- Spanish Harlem Orchestra, the three-time Grammy® winning Salsa and Latin Jazz band, sets the gold standard
for excellence in authentic, New York style, hard core salsa. Now celebrating 20 years of excellence, SHO, as they are known to fans, is dedicated to the sounds of the barrio (Spanish Harlem, NYC). Their music is characterized by the raw, organic and vintage sound defined by the genre. They are on a mission to keep the musical legacy of salsa dura (hard salsa) alive and expand its audience to those who love great music, not just Latin music. Grounded in the past, while focused on the future, they strive to keep the music relevant, creating a unique and fresh approach.

With eight CD’s and five Grammy nominations, this powerhouse orchestra is aware that it is crucial to continually push themselves and raise the bar. Their 2018 release “Anniversary” won the 2019 Grammy® Award for “Best Tropical Album”. On their latest 2022 release, Imágenes Latinas, SHO stays true to their purpose with a fresh slate of new songs and arrangements dedicated to the memory of iconic New York salsa and Latin Jazz group, Conjunto Libre and its members Andy Gonzalez, Jerry Gonzalez, Barry Rogers, and leader Manny Oquendo.

Presented in partnership with the Outpost Performance Space and the New Mexico Jazz Festival.
