AFRO DOMINICANO BAND at Buunni Coffee Inwood

AFRO DOMINICANO is a Latin Fusion band that centers its music around what they call Afro Caribbean soul. They blend traditional folkloric roots music from the Dominican Republic such as Perico Ripiao, Palo, Merengue de Orquesta, Bachata with Afro-beats, reggae, calypso, samba, funk, punk rock and other Caribbean rhythms.

The songs are written by band leader Adriano Brito and arranged by the band. One review describes their live performance like taking a trip through history from ritualistic ceremonial music to MTV’s Total Request. Their music allows for forgotten rhythms and music to be remembered. Their website is https://www.afrodominicano.band/

It will be a lively evening of music!

Walking Tour: NYC/Croton Aqueduct Archaeological Site

Walk NYC’s newest historic find recently designated Coogan’s Bluff archaeological site.  With panoramic views across the Harlem River Valley, we inspect the archaeological evidence of this 175-year-old stone artifact.  Built by Irish laborers who had to chip through solid rock, this mile walk on the Croton Aqueduct is easy and flat.  We will be careful of the steep cliffs that accent the vistas.

Meet at the bus stop on 155th Street and Edgecombe

FREE but Gratuity Appreciated.
