Queens Library in Partnership with The Louis Armstrong House Museum and The Kupferberg Center for the Arts at Queens College celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Louis Armstrong’s original recording of the iconic song ‘What a Wonderful World.’ This is a song inspired by the Great Satchmo’s life in Queens – a song that still inspires millions of people around the world!

Radio Jarocho will offer its interpretation of the song as well as a lively compilation of traditional Folk music from Mexico. Radio Jarocho plays son jarocho, the rowdy, upbeat, and at times melancholic music of the countryside of Veracruz, Mexico, and mixes it with the sounds of New York’s urban wonderful life!
