OLA of Eastern Long Island announces its PACHANGA for PEACE and UNITY

Pachanga: a festive, lively style of music. The name came about to describe the genre in Cuba in 1959.

Featuring live music by:

Mambo Loco – Salsa

Certain Moves – R&B

MilaTina. – Electro Latino Percussion

Willy Fuentes and Friends – original music and arrangements

Special Feature:

***The unveiling of a community inspired R&B classic featuring many diverse voices and musicians from the East End.***

“By the end of the summer, when the all the negative rhetoric around the election was building, I was convinced that we must create a project that showed how beautifully our East End represents unity, generosity and collaboration”, explained Minerva Perez, Executive Director of OLA of Eastern Long Island.

Minerva Perez, set out to create a new arrangement with the musical direction of Willy Fuentes and mixing/recording genius of his daughter Carolina Fuentes-Greinke. Ms. Perez reached out to 12 singers and 16 musicians representing African American, Latino, Anglo, Shinnecock, and Peruvian Indigenous members of our community. The song features children and adults, is sung in both Spanish and English, and will be shared for the first time during our Pachanga at Bay Street Theater.

“We even have a Town Supervisor featured in this song!” says Ms. Perez.

OLA hopes to bring back the sense of community without fear and hatred, as we continue to forge a way forward together.

Please join OLA in celebrating the good that our vibrant and diverse community has to offer. 
Dance, Sing, and enjoy each other’s company. Next week, Saturday, March 11th at 7pm. Bay Street Theatre.
