GRAMMY winners Arturo O'Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra's fifth annual new music concert features a spoken word jam curated by poet, musician, and visionary Angel R. Rodriguez, Sr., and includes a lineup of guest poets, who will be accompanied by the ALJO. DJ Logic will help the Orchestra and poets mix the classic sound of boogaloo, mambo, and salsa with hip-hop, acid jazz, and alternative improvisation in this celebration of the Latino community and the Nuyorican poetry movement! Just added: Lin-Manuel Miranda, actor and Tony Award-winning creator and composer-lyricist of Broadway's In the Heights!
