Grupo Folklórico does Arsenio

Many Latin music acts that have been around for a while carry the tag of “legendary” in their press releases. But few of them have surprised as much as Grupo Folklórico y Experimental Nuevayorquino did a few years ago, when they reunited to play a few concerts 30 years after releasing their second album.

This week, they have got together again to play a single concert in The Bronx, tributing the music of Cuban star (and yes, true legend) Arsenio Rodríguez. I had the incredible fortune of interviewing Grupo Folklórico’s producer, René López, and Israel Berríos, who played with Rodríguez for 13 years, at NY1 Noticias.
