Grupo Irék: "Traditional Cuban music mixed with New York style" Grupo Irék mixes the sounds of Cuba - Son, Cha-Cha-Cha, Mambo - with New York City flavor into their original tunes. Featured on NBC TV and on WBAI 99.5 FM radio, they are quickly becoming a big name in the New York City music scene. Grupo Irék proves music comes from the soul with band members hailing from Cuba, Columbia, Germany, Israel and Brooklyn. Singer Chino Pons, whose dancing has been compared to Fred Astaire and Michael Jackson, has got to be seen in action! Don't miss this sure to be wonderful show and great Latin dance event.
