Serving up a mix of fiery salsa and melodic balladry, the Spanish Harlem Orchestra hearkens back to a time of Latin big band concerts where seasoned musicians joined together to generate a spontaneous, natural energy all their own. “Spanish Harlem is kind of a microcosm of Latinos in New York,” says Hernandez. “It’s an important place culturally for our people and our music. Just like Harlem was extremely important culturally for African Americans, so was Spanish Harlem for Latinos. We’re not a bunch of flyweights who took the name as some kind of ethnic gimmick. We’re the real deal.”
