B.I.G. Salsa Festival

For its fifth year, the Baile International Grand festival celebrates the great pan-American music of salsa — the collaboration of Cuban and Puerto Rican rhythms and the funk and jazz of New York. Over 30 industry talents y su orquestas come ripping through the Grand Hyatt this weekend, among them bandleaders Ray De La Paz and Jimmy Bosch, holdovers from the band of Fania deity Ray Barretto. Closing out the bash on Sunday, ’80s star and full-bodied baritone Tito Nieves performs, one of a handful of major salsa stars to sound as good as he does in English as in Spanish.
