Get ready for the 8th Annual Latin American Cultural Week that takes place in New York from November 14 to 25. You can tour the Latino world, and the city, during this festival featuring new talents and icons of music, dance, film, theater and visual arts. Events are hosted by an eclectic group of esteemed institutions across the city, among them the American Symphony Orchestra, the World Music Institute, Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Instituto Cervantes, Americas Society, Brazilian Endowment for the Arts, Centro Civico Cultural Dominicano, and Repertorio Español.
Organized by the Pan American Musical Art Research (PAMAR) since 2006, The Latin American Cultural Week is one of the most important festivals of the Latino community to be celebrated in New York, reaching out to more than 400,000 people every year.
To name just a few of the events, there’s Brazilian choro at Barbes in Park Slope, Brooklyn, a Colombian music festival at Le Poisson Rouge in the West Village, an all-female tango music and dance ensemble at Tango House in the East Village, and New York’s own Ballet Hispanico at the Apollo Theater in Harlem.
