Latin American Rhythms Night, August 19th at 7pm on FTH FB Live will celebrate the life and music of Diego Obregon, master Colombian musician and marimba maker; and will reunite NY’s leading Colombian musicians in tribute to him.  An Afro-Colombian immigrant artist with incredible talent and a generous spirit, Diego helped establish NYC’s Colombian music scene, fronting his own band Grupo Chonta, mentoring the next generation of musicians, and sitting in with musicians from around the world---all while working in a NYC graveyard to support his family.  Diego died suddenly in July 2020.   His friends, colleagues and bandmates will remember him with a night of music and stories. Hosted and curated by Martin Vejarano (director of La Cumbiamba NY, NYC Gaita Club, and Cumbia River Band), this evening will feature: Grupo Rebolú's Ronald Polo, Moris Cañate, Johanna Castaneda and special guest Harold Gutierrez on Diego’s marimba; Pablo Major (Folklore Urbano) on piano; Sebastián Cruz on guitar; NYC Gaita Club featuring: Christian Rodriguez, Camilo Martinez, and Cristian Quimnay; and with remembrances of Freddy Castiblanco of Terraza 7 and more.   This evening is dedicated to Diego and viewers are invited to help his family at this time.  https://www.gofundme.com/f/a-el-maestro-diego-obregon
