Los Pleneros de la 21 is an East Harlem traditional performing arts nonprofit organization that fosters awareness and appreciation of Puerto Rican traditional expressions—particularly those of African descent: Bomba & Plena—as indispensable to a healthy community life.

 

Bomba and plena are the core of Los Pleneros de la 21's musical production yet música jíbara (mountain music of Puerto Rico), jazz, salsa, rock, rap, and other genres are appreciable influences in their repertoire. Los Pleneros de la 21 brings this interaction to the stage during their performances, as well to the community with their dancing and drumming workshops for people of all ages.

 

Enjoy high-quality musical entertainment on Saturday afternoons in July and August at La Casa Azul Bookstore! From tribute artists to jarocho music and classical music, the Summer Concert Series showcases professional musicians from a wide range of musical backgrounds and is a perfect event for the entire family.
Food will be available for sale, as a fundraiser for the Becas Scholarship Program. Becas is a program that offers scholarships that range from $4500 to $6000 to help CUNY undergraduate and graduate students who meet three criteria: academic excellence, financial need, and commitment to service in the Mexican community. The scholarship primarily aids students with little or no access to other funding sources.
