Presented by Berklee College of Music, IBA - Inquilinos Boricuas en Acción, City of Boston Parks and Recreation DepartmentTito Puente Latin Music Series: Maria Mulata with Esther Rojas
A native of Colombia, María Mulata is one of the most promising and versatile performers in a new wave of artists representing South American music. Her style blends the rich cultural influences of great “cantaoras” like Toto la Momposina, Etelvina Maldonado, and Petrona Martínez, among many others. She is known for her memorable, high-energy performances, which incorporate into her folkloric repertoire an array of sounds new to this particular Colombian genre.
The Tito Puente Latin Music Series takes place in July and August at outdoor locations across Boston. The six-concert series is an infectious soundscape of salsa, bolero, danzón, Afro-Latin, Caribbean, jazz, funk, R&B, and more. Performers include Berklee faculty, students, alumni, and world-renowned artists from Puerto Rico, Cuba, Ecuador, Brazil, and throughout Latin America.
