A huge thank you from the Raíces crew to Gabriel Muñoz & Melodías Borinqueñas for their amazing performance at the Forum Theatre Cultural Arts Center Saturday, September 22.
The concert showcased the folkloric mountain music of Puerto Rico, known as jíbaro music. Attendees had the pleasure of hearing the singing of Cecilia López, a visiting trovadora from Salinas, Puerto Rico. Thank you to all the members of Melodías Borinqueñas for sharing your songs and music with our community, and helping us to raise funds for ongoing sustainable, renewable and just disaster relief and recovery work on the island of Puerto Rico.
