As the sun dips below the horizon, we invite you to dance, sway, and connect with the rhythms of the spring season. 

Belongó (formerly Afro Latin Jazz Alliance) was founded by Arturo O’Farrill in 2007.  Belongó’s mission is to perform, educate about, and preserve the music of the Americas, emanating from African and indigenous roots, through the entry point of jazz. Belongó produces the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra’s annual performance season in NYC. They also maintain a world-class collection of Latin jazz musical scores and recordings. Their education programs include the Belongó Music Academy, an in-school program serving public schools citywide, the pre-professional youth orchestra known as the Fat Cats and Global Rhythms in Our Tribe (G.R.I.O.T.); a community music program that engages underserved youth.
