Harlem Meer Performance Festival - Zon del Barrio with Chocolate Armenteros
Charles A. Dana Discovery Center ((inside the Park at 110th Street between Fifth and Lenox Avenues)



"Steeped in nostaliga, exploding into the future"


Zon del Barrio was founded by Latin music writer, composer, historian & producer Aurora Flores. Her husband David Fernandez is musical director, arranger, multi-instrumentalist, producer & vocalist. Zon del Barrio is a play on the words "son" a musical genre found throughout Cuba, Dom. Republic & Puerto Rico and Barrio "Zone" where people of color work & struggle hard only to party just as hard. With original & cover tunes, if you like salsa, they do it "dura" hardcore style. If you are nostalgic for music from the Islands, they do plena, bomba and merengue Cortijo style and if you like it like that, Zon del Barrio does it like that with English language boogaloos.

Join us for a fun afternoon full of festive flavor!

Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
