Tito Puente Latin Music SeriesFrankie Rodriguez
Puerto Rican percussionist Frankie Rodríguez has been a mainstay in the New England music scene as the go-to bandleader whenever salsa superstars are performing in the region. Some of the artists he has performed with include the legendary Ismael Miranda, Larry Harlow, Lalo Rodríguez, Cheo Feliciano, and many, many more. His band, Homenaje a la Salsa, joins forces with some of the most talented performers from the region and offers an exciting blend of salsa hits from the '70s, '80s, '90s, and today.
This concert is part of the annual Tito Puente Latin Music Series, presented by Berklee, Inquilinos Boricuas en Acción (IBA), and the City of Boston Parks and Recreation Department. This six-concert series takes place in July and August and is an infectious soundscape of live Latin music and dance, with a strong salsa influence, in parks around the city. Performers include Berklee faculty, students, alumni, and world-renowned artists from Puerto Rico, Cuba, Ecuador, Brazil, and throughout Latin America.
