ALBITA

at the Chase Latino Cultural Festival

Queens Theatre in the Park

 

Performing originals from her new CD Mis Tacones, Albita’s pop flair and uncanny songwriting ability have given her the ability to move hearts and bodies simultaneously.

 

The daughter of famous singers, this Cuban diva made her long and hard way to Little Havana via Colombia and Mexico, and her elegant pop songs retain this international scope and appeal. Performing originals from her new CD Mis Tacones, Albita’s Festival appearance will showcase her songwriting skills and dynamic showmanship, and her ability to move hearts and bodies simultaneously.

 

In 1997, Queens Theatre in the Park founded the Latino Cultural Festival with the Latin American Cultural Center of Queens to celebrate the contributions of Latin American artists to New York’s cultural life.  Queens Theatre saw that a rising number of Latinos were calling Queens home and adopted an artistic vision that is at once local and global.  Through the Festival’s performing arts programs, Queens Theatre could better serve the changing community with artistic programs that were relevant and could resonate throughout the community.
