Latin Music Concert Series and Dance Party Outside in the South End Returns 
for Fourth Year on Four Thursdays in July Free Music from Berklee College, La 
Casa de La Cultura, and ParkARTS

Boston, MA, June 16, 2008 - Summer afternoons in Boston can sizzle, but 
evening respites in a neighborhood park listening and dancing to tropical 
sounds and syncopated beats can be even hotter.  The fourth-annual Tito Puente 
Latin Music Series - presented by Berklee College of Music; La Casa de La 
Cultura /Center for Latino Arts, IBA; and ParkARTS - combines the Latin 
rhythms of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Costa Rica, with influences from far-
flung corners of the world, reflecting Berklee’s sonic melting pot.

The FREE music series takes place over four Thursday evenings - July 10, 17, 
24, and 31 - outdoors at O’ Day Park, next door to the Jorge Hernandez 
Cultural Center, 85 West Newton St., in Boston’s South End.  Concerts are from 
7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
For more information call 617-927-1707, e-mail info@claboston.org, or click 
berklee.edu/events.  The park is wheelchair accessible.
This year’s program:

July 31 – Eguie Castrillo, who will perform with his orchestra, is a native of 
San Juan and an authority on the rhythms of Cuba, the Dominican Republic, 
Puerto Rico, and Trinidad and Tobago.  The timbale and conga player has 
performed or recorded with such Latin luminaries as Arturo Sandoval, Ruben 
Blades, and Michel Camilo, and American pop and jazz stars including Michael 
Brecker, Steve Winwood, and Jennifer Lopez.  Among his greatest influences is 
Tito Puente, whose spirit lives in Castrillo’s orchestra performances that 
salute the 1950s Palladium Ballroom scene in New York City, where dancers went 
wild for Puente’s mambo music.  The 18-piece orchestra includes a large horn 
section, congas, bongos, and lots of energy.  He has been teaching in 
Berklee's percussion department since 1999. 

About the presenters:
Now in its 12th year, ParkARTS began as Mayor Thomas M. Menino’s initiative to 
present a yearlong program of arts and culture related programs and events in 
Boston's park system. ParkARTS, the Boston Parks and Recreation Department's 
multi faceted arts program incorporates the visual, performing, and 
participatory arts.  The 2008 ParkARTS performing arts program will present 
concerts in Boston neighborhood parks that range from jazz to symphonic music. 
The Center for Latino Arts/La Casa de la Cultura is a cutting-edge, multi-
functional community arts complex that conveys to both Latinos and non-Latinos 
from all over New England, the vitality of contemporary and traditional Latino 
cultural expressions, including folk dance and music, Latin jazz, film, 
poetry, and theater.  The Center joins our Jorge Hernandez performance space 
(converted into a 450-seat venue from a historic church in 1986) with a new 
community arts center (renovated from the adjacent parish house in 2003) that 
includes a gallery, dance studio and visual arts studio.  Inquilinos Boricuas 
en Acción (IBA) is a dynamic community building agency dedicated to increasing 
the social and economic power of individuals and families through education, 
economic development, technology and arts programming that build safe, vibrant 
and culturally diverse affordable housing communities.
Berklee College of Music was founded on the revolutionary principle that the 
best way to prepare students for careers in music was through the study and 
practice of contemporary music. For over half a century, the college has 
evolved constantly to reflect the state of the art of music and the music 
business. With over a dozen performance and nonperformance majors, a diverse 
and talented student body representing over 70 countries, and a music industry 
"who's who" of alumni, Berklee is the world's premier learning lab for the 
music of today — and tomorrow.

As a fundraiser event for Vicente Lebron we're having six of the best Boston 
area salsa bands live this Thursday July 31st @ Club Mojitos, Downtown Boston 
starting at 8pm:

1) Grupo Chequere (Bernardo Hernandez) 8pm (play 45 minutes)

2) Grupo Sazon (Jesus Andujar) 9pm

3) Salsa Night Band (Javier Arroyo) 10pm

4) Rumba Nama (Gilberto) 11pm

5) I Level (Matt Jenson) 12am

6) Manguito (Alex Alvear) 1am

by Leo Blanco. All proceeds to benefit our Vicente Lebron and the predicament 
he's facing with imigration issues.
