King of the Cuatro
In honor of Yomo Toro, I had the privilege of presenting to Denise Toro, a portrait of her father floating over the beach of Rincon, Puerto Rico while playing his cuatro. The event was held at the world famous Copacabana. The tribute, directed by Aurora Flores and David Fernandez of Zon del Barrio, also included guest performers, politicians and salsa legends. Goya Foods sponsored the historic night delighted with the enormous amount of salseros that participated in the Parranda. The festivities were lead by Zon del Barrio and the famous folkloric group Danza Fiesta. As the crowd danced the night away, we were grateful to share the stage with legendary musicians Larry Harlow, Alfredo de la Fe, Alfredo “Chocolate” Armenteros, and Reinaldo Jorge. It was truly a night to remember.
