Last night was pretty EPIC as HBO Latino treated us to a historical tour via The Ride NYC of El Barrio's Salsa history led by Bobby Sanabria. This video was a preview with a special performance by the Manhattan School of Music's Afro Cuban Band and Sonero Víctor Manuelle.

After that... lots of great food, dancing snd social sharing... follow the #SalsaConmigo hashtag to see who was there and how it went down.

Do not forget to watch "Que Suenen Los Tambores" Friday, November 18th on HBO Latino.
