World Music Institute presents:

Gerardo Contino y Los Habaneros
Cuba to Brooklyn!
RECORD RELEASE PARTY

SATURDAY, May 11th, 7pm-midnight

Roulette (509 Atlantic Ave, downtown Brooklyn)

Gritty, witty and streetwise, the Havana-born Gerardo Contino sings timba—a progressive, raucous style of salsa. He'll perform original work and classics from his new CD, Somos Latinos, with special guests, vocalist Xiomara Laugart and percussionist Luisito Quintero. Be prepared to participate! This former lead singer of the Cuban mega-group NG La Banda is a party onstage: he loves to improvise, to pull the audience into call & response, and to provoke fans into hip-shaking abandon.

7:00-8:00pm OPEN RUM BAR
7:30-8:00pm FREE SALSA DANCE LESSON taught by Carlos Mateu
8:00-9:30pm LIVE CONCERT with GERARDO CONTINO Y LOS HABANEROS
9:30-midnight AFTER-PARTY with DJ ASHO

SLIDE SHOW of images by Helena de Branganca from her documentary photography book I am Cuban.
