About this Event

LA BOCA DEL RIO

Papo Santiago y su Orquesta under the direction of Edwin Sánchez

Opening act by the Ruiz Belvis Collective

Free salsa class before the show with SRBCC resident artist María Torres

In his new single "La Boca del Río", Papo Santiago offers his most personal work yet. In this ode to his teenage years and his beginnings in Puerto Rico, Papo Santiago paints a vivid image of the fishing traditions in his hometown of Ponce. The song is special because there has never been a salsa anthem for the fishermen quite like Santiago's. The lyrics are full of Puerto Rican regionalisms from the southern coast, as well as a good dose of fishing slang, but the magic sauce for this swinging tune is the combination of razor sharp soneos (vocal improvisations) by Papo Santiago and a killer arrangement by Kevin Pagán.
