Ximena Sariñana is making alternative plans for the summer…
The 29-year-old Mexican singer-songwriter is set to perform at this year’s Latin Alternative Music Conference.
Taking place at the Central Park Summerstage and St. Mary’s Park in the Bronx, the event will also feature a performance by Vicentico, best known as the lead singer of Los Fabulosos Cadillacs.
He’ll headline a Saturday show with his own band on July 11, when Sariñana and critics’ favorites No Te Va Gustar, Uruguay’s most popular rock band, will also perform.
Mexican Institute of Sound’s Camilo Lara and DJ/producer Toy Selectah, performing together as Compass, will be featured at Summerstage on July 8. They’ll be joined by Colombian electro-cumbia outfit Systema Solar and the bilingual electronic music artist known as Helado Negro.
At a July 7 show at St. Mary’s, DJ Afro — aka Los Amigos Invisibles’ Jose Luis Pardo — shares the bill with “Our Latin Thing,” a tribute to the music of salsa founders the Fania Allstars and their ’70s scene by 17 singers and musicians.
Now in its 16th year, the LAMC is an annual date for lovers of diverse Latin sounds and tastemakers of all stripes. This year’s event will include several days of industry panels and presentations at the Affinia Manhattan Hotel, and showcases around the New York City area that can be attended by the public.
