Julia de Burgos Presents:
New York's Premier Charanga Band
Join us for an evening of fun and dance at the Julia de Burgos Cultural Center. SonSublime is New York's Top Cuban Charanga orchestra, playing the classic styles of Danzón, Cha-Cha-Cha and Son. SonSublime embraces these classic styles and enhances them with a fresh, energetic sound adored by young and mature dancers alike.
The Julia de Burgos Cultural Center was named for a Puerto Rican journalist and poet. Born on February 17, 1914, Julia de Burgos was one of the most important and beloved Puerto Rican poets working in New York in the first half of the twentieth century. Modern critics believe that de Burgos’s poetry anticipated the work of feminist writers and poets as well as that of other Hispanic authors. De Burgos published several books including; Poemas Exactos de mí Misma, Poemas en Veinte Zurcos and Canción de la Verdad Sencilla. She received several honors and homages before and after her death. De Burgos died in East Harlem, on July 6, 1953 at the early age of 39. The Center is housed in a former school building–the first full-block school building in the city. Its conversion to a cultural center in 1994-95 by East Harlem architects Lee Borero and Raymond Plumey won high praise and awards from preservation organizations. The building is now used as a school, an office, a theater and art gallery.
