Gregorio Uribe in the Lincoln Center Atrium
Colombian singer and accordionist Gregorio Uribe returns to Lincoln Center this Thursday, January 19, for the launch of his third album “Hombre Absurdo.” In his eternal search for a unique and personal sound, Uribe has gone beyond the familiar vallenato to explore the unknown rhythms of the sabanero accordion. The infectious rhythms of cumbia, paseaito, and pasebol are tinged with Cuban timba, Puerto Rican bomba, and Dominican merengue, reinforcing the artist’s love of Afro-Latin music. His passion for rhythm and harmony is matched only by his admiration for great literary and philosophical works. Echoes of Dostoevsky and Kierkegaard mix with the sounds of rural Colombia in a way that we could only describe as “Existential Cumbia”.. At 7:30 p.m. Free. The entrance to the Atrium is on Broadway Avenue, between 62nd and 63rd streets. Information: /lincolncenter.org
Salsa concert with Jimmy “El Trombón Criollo” Bosch
Lincoln Center’s Latino concert series, ¡VAYA!, this time welcomes Jimmy “El Trombón Criollo” Bosch. The New Jersey-born musician whose 50-year career includes extensive tours with the FANIA Orchestra, Eddie Palmieri and Rubén Blades, currently directs the Salsa Masters Orchestra and is a pioneering voice for today’s generation of hard salsa performers. Bosch and his ensemble draw musical strength from the traditional formula of driving percussion, danceable trombone and piano melodies, and resonant soneos, with the vibrant call-and-response vocal improvisation that ties the band to legendary New York salsa groups of the 1960s and 1970s. Enjoy the passion and intensity of live hard salsa, plus music from DJ Broadway this Friday, starting at 7:30 pm. Free. The entrance to the Atrium is on Broadway Avenue, between 62nd and 63rd streets. Information: /lincolncenter.org
