Event description
Latin jazz quintet La Banda Ramirez / Metrotang plays treasures of New York’s Latin music.

About this Event

From the Caribbean African diaspora, through Cuba and Puerto Rico, to New York City’s Spanish Harlem and the Bronx. Tunes by Ray Barretto, Eddie Palmieri, Mongo Santamaria, Dave Valentin, with spice from Celia Cruz. Originals by bandleader and drummer Chacho Ramirez and Bill Jacobs incorporate African rhythms into this New York mix.

Hal Galper says, of Chacho’s “Metrotang” CD:Lights Out, by percussionist Chacho Ramirez’s quintet Metrotang, pulsates with the heartbeat of urban Latin music. Combining salsa and jazz with his Cuban roots, Chacho has created a contemporary sound that expresses today’s cultural milieu. Whether for listening, dancing or partying, this CD should be in everyone’s collection.

Kanika M, Mount Vernon, NY says: “Metrotang/ La Banda Ramirez was absolutely fantastic! They set just the right mood and tone for our Havana Nights themed party. My guests danced and also simply enjoyed smoking cigars, sipping on mojitos and Cuba libres while listening to smooth Latin jazz. Thank you, thank you!!”
