Afropop Kicks Off Summer with Jose Conde and Pupy y Los Que Son Son in Central Park

The possibility of thunderstorms and 60 mph winds didn't stop people from flocking into SummerStage yesterday afternoon. As families waited in line for the traditional El Salvadorian "pupusa"--a thick cornmeal tortilla filled with cheese and either chicken or vegetables, the afternoon of music was off to a long build up with the easy-groove salsa of Jose Conde and his band. The Cuban flag made its way to the front just before Pupy y Los Que Son Son started their set with horns that made a sleeping baby want to get up and groove (future Afropop fan?). But really, you missed the cutest mohawk-rocking baby I've ever seen. In any case, you don't want to miss the 25+ concerts all over NYC this summer. Check back with us next week when Baaba Maal rocks SummerStage on 6/14. For a full list of concerts this summer, check out our events section of the website.
