Brazilian and Latin music coming up at Symphony Space

 

Symphony Space will present in the coming weeks a new music event series, LatiNew, dedicated to bridging the cultural gap separating Latin and Brazilian music genres. The idea behind the project is to take advantage of NYC’s local talents by bringing to the public great Latin and Brazilian artists based in the city. Each concert will be preceded by a complimentary happy hour and followed by a DJ party at Bar Thalia.
