Summer Nights: Los Habaneros
Enjoy our Summer Nights series, featuring a list of award-winning acts that will make your night in the Park unforgettable. This week’s performance will be Los Habaneros on August 1 from 6-8pm on the southern gravel across from Shake Shack.
“Best Band of Manhattan” (WNYC) and “Best Cuban Band” (New York Latin Culture Magazine).
The explosive Los Habaneros are a force to behold on stage. Mixing musical styles from their home in Cuba with the diversity of sounds they encountered when they made New York City their home, Los Habaneros transcend traditional musical genres to create a real fusion that provokes fans into hip-shaking abandon. The band is comprised of a young generation of Havana-trained musicians, including director and singer Gerardo Contino.
The band’s first album, Somos Latinos (2013), was released to very high critical acclaim, and their second album, Los Habaneros (2018) is a wide cross-section of Latin music fused with the sounds of NYC. Los Habaneros have toured in Peru, Canada, Qatar, and all throughout the United States. They have played at the Kennedy Center for the Arts, the American Folk Festival, Brooklyn Academy of Music, BB King Blues Club, Subrosa, BAMCafe, The Green Space, Sounds of Brazil (SOBs), Le Poisson Rouge, The Bronx Museum, the American Museum of Natural History, Live at the Gantries, Roulette, Gonzalez y Gonzalez, Taj, and many others.
