SummerStage Anywhere La India & La Bruja Tonight 8 pm

Summerstage, one of the events we look forward to most each summer, like many other of our faves, has had to adapt due to Covid-19. This summer, they’re bringing the stage to us via SummerStage Anywhere.

Today, Thursday, July 23rd, fans will be able to tune in for an exclusive Culture Talk with Salsa star and Latin Grammy winner La India and multifaceted performer La Bruja. The two will be taking over SummerStage’s InstagramYoutubeFacebook, and Twitch starting at 8pm ET.

Over the course of their conversation, they will be going back to their Bronx roots to discuss how their home has always supported and developed culture and music, their mutual experiences performing at SummerStage over the years, how La India has stayed focused and maintained her career, how she has been staying connected to her fans through recent months, and more.

All summer long SummerStage will be highlighting different genres that were born in or deeply represent New York culture – Mondays: Contemporary Dance, Tuesdays: Global, Wednesdays: Indie Rock, Thursdays: Latin, Fridays: Hip Hop and Saturdays: Jazz. The SummerStage team has spent months finding ways to make the most of this summer and remains committed to bringing free, accessible, and diverse arts programming to New York City (and now the world!) Recent Latin programming includes a Salsa dance class with Ernesto & Denisse and a Weekly Beat DJ Session with DJ Lobo
