Las Caras Lindas, Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center’s Afro-Latin music series sets the stage for a culinary and musical journey. For this unprecedented event SRBCC, the oldest Puerto Rican Cultural Center in Chicago, joins forces with the Dominican American Midwest Association to bring one of the most established and celebrated artists of the booming Dominican music scene: Joan Soriano. Known for his clean, feathery guitar sound, which punches out rhythmic lines, Soriano has performed around the world from back bars to concert halls, and he is hailed by many as “the finest contemporary exponent of traditional bachata.” Opening for Soriano will be SRBCC’s youth ensemble.
Admission: FREE, $10 donation for tasting option. Choose the tasting option to experience the flavors of Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, prepared by Punta Cana Restaurant!
This is an all-ages event.
