Quintero's Salsa Project—made up of cousins Roberto and Luisito—continue the Afro-Caribbean traditions of their native Venezuela. Luisito (timbales) traveled extensively with Oscar D'León and honed his percussive skills working alongside Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, Marc Anthony, Gloria Estefan, among others. And it’s hard to imagine the world of percussion without Roberto Quintero, whose dedication to his musical heritage has earned him an impressive seventeen Grammy Awards. Together they create irresistible music for dancers, flawlessly blending New York City–influenced salsa and classic Venezuelan rhythms to produce a fresh street sound. Opening set by DJ Mario Presented in collaboration with the NYU Music and Social Change Lab. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
