Led by world famous pianist and arranger Oscar Hernández, the Spanish Harlem Orchestra has established itself as the musical curators of “El Barrio,” aka Spanish Harlem. Specializing in salsa dura, Latin soul, boogaloo, mambo, and many other variants within the Latin idiom, Spanish Harlem Orchestra has collaborated with music greats such as Rubén Blades, Jimmy Bosch, Marco Bermudez, Willie Torres, Ray De La Paz, and Paul Simon on his Broadway musical The Capeman. This thirteen-person orchestra performs with unmatched energy, precision, and skill, capturing the drama and passion of New York’s SpaHa culture.(Source)
