Overview

Heat up the Kimmel Center each month at La NOCHE!  Experience the hottest live bands as you turn up the steam on the dance floor, led by host/dance leader Kevin Ngo. Enjoy the sexy rhythms of The Caribbean and Latin America as live bands serve up a caliente mix of music that really makes you want to move.

We kick off the party with The La NOCHE Band, led by master percussionist Arturo Stable.  We then welcome a different guest group to light up the dance floor.

 ¡Baila a la música, bebe las cervezas!

 Bulla en el Barrio:

Bulla en el Barrio started in October 2014 and is currently comprised of 14 people who have been consistently meeting to learn and practice Bullerengue. The bullerengue tradition was born in Columbia in the Uraba and Caribbean region and has been a tool for women to express themselves through music and dance. For this reason, women’s leadership and their power to engage communities into creative processes characterizes bullerengue.

“What we want with our music is to share with others and ourselves, to make noise, and to recognize the role of women in our dances. Bulla en el Barrio is the noise of the people, people who can't afford to return to Colombia, but who want to connect with la tierra.” - Carolina Oliveros, Lead Singer Bulla en el Barrio
