New York: Little Puerto Rico

Puerto Rican emigration to New York from the outset of the 20th century had an indelible effect on Puerto Rican music. New York-based companies such as Columbia, Victor, and Brunswick made most of the early recordings of Puerto Rican music in New York.

Co-presented in partnership with the Museum of the African Diaspora and the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival
