one August evening in the 1970’s
New York gave birth to a sound that would change
the face of Latin music forever.
At the renown Cheetah Nightclub, there was an
ensemble of artists got together for what became
a magical evening of music. The show was billed
as “Our Latin Thing“. In the decades ahead those
all-star musicians would become the ambassadors
and juggernauts of Latin Music around the world.

Demo: Bitter Melon—A
Vengeful Vegetable? on Saturday, August 08 -
1:00PM. On the Grounds at Wave Hill. Bitter in taste and
weird in appearance, the intriguing bitter melon (Momordica
charantia) is a popular ingredient in Asian, African and
Caribbean cuisine. Discover quick-cooking techniques for the
tender young fruits with a creative chef from Great
Performances, then join a walk to observe this warty fruit
in the gardens. Be prepared—they are bit horrific-looking,
especially when they burst open and drip gooey
red seeds onto the ground! Sinful Weekend event. Free with
admission to the grounds.
