About Mi Gente!
Mi Gente! Latinx Music Festival is a music festival that celebrates the music, arts, and community heritage of the Bronx. Our mission is to serve as a cultural link for the Latin diaspora across the Bronx and New York City. We do this by creating collaborations to highlight the traditional and contemporary music rhythms of Latin America at the home of majority of residents from the Latin diaspora, the Bronx.
We activate local spaces like the, The Point's Campus for Arts and Environment, Hunts Point Riverside Park, support local Bronx businesses and bring awareness to social causes. The term Latinx is intentionally part of the title as we want to signal the festival as a safe space to honor the contributions of queer, trans, and gender nonconforming individuals to the diaspora’s musical heritage.
We have a multicultural and intergenerational line-up of live performances representing music genres from traditional to contemporary like Folk, Contemporary Jazz, Cumbia, Afro-Latino drumming, Rock, Pop, Reggae.
