ABOUT THE ARTISTS:

ORLANDO MARIN, THE LAST MAMBO KING
A contemporary of such greats as Tito Puente, Machito, and Tito Rodriguez, Orlando Marin is the only Latin orchestra leader from New York’s golden era of mambo still performing regularly. Marin formed his first band in 1951 and recorded his first album in 1954 on Fiesta Records. Since then, he has performed at esteemed national and international music venues and has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Bobby Capo Lifetime Achievement Award.

BEMBONA
Bembona is a Puerto Rican-Panamanian DJ, multi-platform artist, and activist, born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Her work represents and pushes forward the Afro-Diasporadical movement—Latinx/Indigenous/Caribbean/African—with the purpose of empowering and connecting communities of color, across generations, social movements, and beyond.

She’s toured in Colombia, spun at the Afro-Latino Festival, opened for Bomba Estéreo in New York, produced mixtapes for the legendary salsa label Fania Records, and represents one-third of Loca Vibes Radio, a two-hour independent guerrilla radio show aired through Radio Free Brooklyn.
