Calling all Plenero(a)s, Cantantes, Amigos y Familia!!!
Internationally renowned musicians Los Pleneros de la 21 are bringing a heart-warming tradition from Puerto Rico: “Las Parrandas de Aguinaldos” to East Harlem!
Los Pleneros de la 21 junto a todos will travel around El Barrio neighborhood making stops to surprise hosts and neighbors with traditional festive Christmas aguinaldos and Plenas of the season. Join us as we spread holiday cheer and lift spirits throughout the community.
For this special community event, we are incredibly proud to feature the students from the Adult Workshops segment of our Bomba & Plena Community Workshops held at Julia de Burgos Cultural Center each week. So to get your FULL Puerto Rico-in-NYC Parranda experience, below is a track of stops we will be making throughout the evening (Side note: if you are not able to join us at the first “Asalto” feel free to join us at any other stop).
