Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum honors Latino Heritage Month with annual festival, August 28

CLEVELAND: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum hosts its second Latino Heritage Festival, an annual event that celebrates the rich Latino culture and its musical traditions.

This event will take place on the outside plaza of the Rock Hall on Sunday, August 28, 2011, from Noon to 4 p.m. and includes performances by Hector Tricoche, Sammy De León y su Orquesta, Latin Soul Ballroom Dance Company, Julia De Burgos’ Explosion Divina Dance Troupe, Zumba instructors and more.

The Latino Heritage Festival is FREE, however paid admission is necessary to tour the Rock Hall exhibits and participate in this film screening. 

The Museum’s community festivals offer opportunities for Cleveland’s diverse ethnic communities to become more acquainted with the Rock Hall and the range of music styles and cultures it celebrates.

The Latino Heritage community festival is a kick-off to Latino Heritage month, celebrated September 15-October 15 every year. In tribute to Latino music and culture, the festival will feature an array of musical talent that will provide the soundtrack to an afternoon of lively entertainment, including:
_One of the Original Salsa Kings, Hector Tricoche is an international musician of Puerto Rican descent who sings in the genre of Latin pop and salsa. With his high and melodic voice, Tricoche has stood out in the sleepy decade of the 1990s salsa scene through his richly textured and versatile musical compilations. Critics have praised him for combining a harmonious voice with the creative snappiness of an improvisation artist. A highlight of Hector Tricoche’s albums is the intricate and sophisticated horn arrangements. He has released nine albums in the United States and more internationally.
_Sammy De León, former musical director of the legendary Impacto Nuevo, has put together a combination of traditional salsa rhythms with a more aggressive and progressive style that lends an appeal to a multi-cultural audience. This style enables De Leon’s music to delight not only fans of salsa, merengüe, and Latin Jazz, but of all music genres. The whole band, known for their lively performance, may stop on a dime, change directions in a heart-stopping second, speeds up or slows down with the sound of his stick and shifts grooves with a look.

Along with live music, the Museum will also welcome JiBARO Gourmet Food Truck to the Latino Heritage Festival to serve Latin-inspired food and beverages for purchase.
