A Nuyorican love letter to salsa and the Bronx
Latino Cultural Center | 2600 Live Oak, Dallas, Tx, 75204
With unabashed love for The Bronx, a gift for crafting memorable characters, and genuine good humor, Navaja and five top-notch musicians – aka The Razor Blades – bring on the charm, the rhythm, and the soul essential to a Bronx Sonero. Paying homage to many great musical icons—from Janis Joplin to Menudo, from The Doors to Héctor Lavoe, from Jimi Hendrix to Rubén Blades—the play is as much about Navaja’s creative evolution as it is about the wild mix that gives life to a rhyme, a people and a culture.
