Celebrate the holiday season at the Bronx Music Heritage Center with holiday traditions from two of the Bronx’s distinct Latino communities: Puerto Rican and Garifuna.

Puerto Rican communities ring in the holidays with the cuernos tradition and vejigante masks, and Garifuna communities do it with charikanari and piamanadi traditions.

This event features music by Lucy Blanco, James Lovell, Jorge Vasquez, Felix Gamboa, multi-Grammy nominated percussionist Bobby Sanabria, and many others.
