The first of three free downtown dance parties will feature Jose Fajardo Jr. y Sus Orquesta.
Salsa time! Jose Fajardo, Jr., son of legendary Cuban orchestra leader “Flute King” Jose Fajardo, has stood the test of time as a musician, bandleader, and now singer. After more than 30 years of experience in the music industry, Fajardo, Jr. continues to keep his father’s legacy alive. Fajardo, Jr. has performed and/or recorded with some of the greatest Latin musicians of all time. Some of these include Jose Fajardo, Johnny Pacheco, Larry Harlow, Orchestra Broadway, Azuquita, Alfredo De La Fe, Tipica 73, Oscar D’Leon, Jose Alberto, Cachao, Cano Estremera, La Sonora Mantancera, Johnny Ray, Grupo Imagen, Luisito Carrión, Pedro Jesus, Edgar Joel, Johnny Almendra, Tito Puente, Sheila E., Nino Segarra, and many others. Since the death of his father in 2001, Fajardo, Jr. has been the director of the orchestra his father created in 1949 and has changed the traditional sound of charanga music to a larger salsa sound for all generations.
In the event of rain, the concert will take place in the Ossie Davis Theater of the New Rochelle Public Library.
