LaRumba.net Presents:

 

"New York City's Hottest Weekly Dance Party" - Time Out NY

 

 

Live Cuban Music By

Nu Guajiro

 

w/ DJ DAVID MEDINA (between sets)

Spinning The Best Cuban Dance Music North Of Havana!

 

Nu Guajiro (formerly Mo’ Guajiro) struck its first chords in Brooklyn, NY in 1995, long before Buena Vista Social Club and the current influx of Son Montuno groups hit Manhattan. From the start, a tremendous love and respect for the great Septetos and Conjuntos of El Son (Cuban predecessor of Salsa) brought current co-leaders Aaron Halva (Iowa) and Jainardo Batista-Sterling (Puerto Rico) together in a great search for their own flavor of this music that continues today. Over the past 13 years they have had the honor of sharing the stage with Los Van Van, Ibrahim Ferrer and The Buena Vista Social Club, El Gran Combo, La Sonora Poncena, and Chucho Valdez among many others. They have toured the United States, Puerto Rico and Europe for private performances, festivals, radio and TV appearances. Nu means NEW. Guajiros are Cuban country folk. Considered by many as the premier Son group in New York, Nu Guajiro blends a profound respect for tradition with a healthy dose of funky innovation and the grit of 10 years on New York City Streets.

 

"Nu Guajiro has strong following...with swing, sabor and charm to spare."
- Rhythm Magazine

 

"Con la música fluyendo por dentro como la sangre, ya son una institución en la ciudad"
- El Diario

 

"Brash, sexy and fun, Nu Guajiro weave in and out of songs... the melody explodes. The crowd likes what they hear. It's community, and it works. Everyone's invited. No hang-ups, no hidden agendas and no sitting around. This party is far from over."
- Village Voice
