Yesterday I visited the American Sabor: Latinos in US Popular Music exhibition
at Lincoln Center.
The exhibition explores the influence that Latinos had on popular genres of music.
Including Jazz, Hip Hop, Rock N' Roll, and R&B.
From the 1940s to the present, several artists are featured in the exhibit.
The exhibit has five different sections.
Each showcases how a specific city in the US
played a major role in Latino music production. These cities include:
LA, Miami, New York, San Antonio, and San Francisco.
The exhibit also includes two videos, various music stations, and
a juke box and dance floor.
As usual, I did not follow the exhibition rules.
I took a few pictures..
Under each photo I have added a link to that artist's music.
Willie Colón & Héctor Lavoe "La Murga De Panama"
Celia Cruz "La Negra Tiene Tumbao"
Tito Puente "Oye Como Va"
La Lupe "El Carbonero"
Celia Cruz & Willie Colón "Usted Abusó"
Selena "Como La Flor"
The exhibition will be on display until July 13, 2013
