Harlem Meer Performance Festival: Afro Dominicano Band

Afro Dominicano is a world-music band that creates what they call “Afro Caribbean soul.” Their pulsating and rhythmic blend of traditional folkloric roots music from the Dominican Republic—including perico ripiao, palo, merengue de orquesta, and bachata—with Afro beats, reggae, calypso, samba, funk, punk rock, and other African rhythms expertly goes beyond any one genre.

Please note: Performances will now take place at the Charles A. Dana Discovery Center (inside the Park at 110th Street between Fifth and Lenox Avenue).

Entrance is FREE, and tickets are NOT required.
