Daily Dose of Sofrito: Peru Negro


Photo credit: Mamarazzi

After a full day of BBQ’ing, I hung out with my super producer “The Guy” and my good friend Rafael Preza to see the Bomba y Plena Spring Extravaganza at the Symphony Space in NYC. We were there as Media Sponsors and I have to say…”que clase de show!!!”.

The event featured Segunda Quimbamba, Los Pleneros De La 21, Tato Torres and YerbaBuena (big shout to Tato and Flaco) and Danza Fiesta. My favorite parts of the show were Flaco rocking Campo with the hip hop verses…as well as Danza Fiesta’s colorful depiction of a day en una plaza Puertoriquena (had me craving Piraguas and all that).

We had a great time…soooo while we are waiting for some of the pictures and videos, I thought I would share a video from Peru that shows some of their African influenced music and dance…para que se las gozen!!!!

A warm saludos to Bobby Gonzalez (The Bronx Taino), Maria Aponte ( so happy to finally meet you), Mamarazzi, Mr & Mrs Boricuation and my man G-Positive who not only attended but ended up in La Nueva Victoria eating Chino Latino food afterwards.

A special saludos for Helene Vazquez from Velaz Media for putting together such a great event.

So here it is… Peru Negro

PS…this is dedicated to THE GUY who is Peruano…

Buen Provecho!
