Remembering the Palladium Days (Part II)
The Museum of Latin American Art is paying tribute to the days of one of New York’s most celebrated dance halls, the Palladium, at 4 p.m. Aug. 17.
The kings of Afro Caribbean swing, with a live performance featuring Grammy Award-winning vocalist, Herman Olivera and Freddie Crespo’s Mambo Revue Orchestra performing the music of the “Big Three,” Machito, Tito Puente and Tito Rodriguez.
Considered by critics as one of today’s most representative salsa singers, Herman Olivera began singing professionally with local New York bands at the tender age of 15. He would then be afforded the opportunity to sing lead vocals with Conjunto Libre under the direction of Manny Oquendo and Andy Gonzalez. After two decades with Conjunto Libre, Olivera worked regularly with Johnny Pacheco, Ray Barretto, Bobby Rodriguez y La Compañia and The Machito Orchestra. He performs with Eddie Palmieri’s Orchestra and is featured on five of Palmieri’s CDs, including Masterpiece/Obra Maestra with the late, great Tito Puente, which earned two Grammys.
