Son Como Son 25th Anniversary
National Hispanic Cultural Center
8:00 PM - 10:00 AM
A Retrospective Celebration of Salsa in Albuquerque, New Mexico

This 25th anniversary concert is Son Como Son’s tribute to the rich lineage of Cuban music. It is a tribute to the dance—the dance between the Yoruban spiritual world and the Spanish colonialists, the dance between the past and the future, the dance where the ocean meets the desert. Most of all, it is a tribute to the dancers of Albuquerque—to each and every one who has buoyed this ship for the past 25 years and helped to put Albuquerque on the salsa map.
