The Nuyorican Transcendence is an event that embraces the soul of the Afro-Taino by paying homage to roots of the Puerto Rican culture and heritage while launching them into the future. This is event was much needed in the Bronx because most Puerto Rican day parade events occur outside of the borough. There will be food provided by Mamacitas combining a medley of flavors from classic Nuyorican cuisine with a new modern twists for your palate to enjoy.
This is event will feature performance by The B.O.O.M. peforming originals as well as covers from Nuyorican innovators in Salsa, Latin Jazz, Hip Hop and more. There will also be special performance by Raquel Joan, Atiyya and Rio Azul as well as a unannounced special guest. We will also be showing the film Pa' Lante which speaks about the plight of the people of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. The night also features music by Nuyorican selectors Uptown Vinyl Supreme as well as vendors and painters representing Nuyorican culture.
The NYC Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment and NYC Parks present New York Music Month Concert Series!
Join us for a Hip Hop Family Day celebration featuring Uptown Vinyl Supreme, Ana Garcia, DJ Perly, and Grandmaster Caz.
Uptown Vinyl Supreme is a Bronx-based DJ collective and community organization paying homage to the analog roots of music, party, and dance culture. Records have the power to uplift, inspire, and heal the people. Friends and lovers of vinyl, Sunny Cheeba, Buddy, Silver Disco, and Brujo Boogie take this responsibility seriously and continue to explore progressive ways in which this power can reach audiences all over the world, be it through dance gatherings, individual sessions, workshops, private functions, or cultural institutions.
Ana Garcia, better known by her stage name Rokafella, is a breakdancer and dance teacher. At the age of 11, Rokafella had thus far found her step and was on the path of becoming a B-Girl. Garcia is not only a renowned dancer but also a poet, musician, filmmaker, and entrepreneur. Rokafella is also regarded as the pioneer for the new generation of B-Girls and B-Boys. Raised in Spanish Harlem by Puerto Rican immigrants, Garcia grew up seeing hip hop performed in her own neighborhood during the late 1970s and '80s. In 1991, veteran breakdancer Kwikstep took Garcia on as a mentee. She would go on to dance with many crews in New York City including The Transformers, The Breeze Team, and the New York City Float Committee. With her now-husband, Kwikstep, Rokafella co-founded and performs with the non-profit hip-hop dance company Full Circle Productions to empower young dancers through the positive power of hip-hop.
DJ Perly is a female Puerto Rican Russian American DK who plays hip hop, breaks, and house music, and practices the art of turntablism with a passion. She is the first female to win the DMC Championship!
