Salsa Groove:
Bringing dance style classic Afro-Boricua music from the barrios, Aurora & Zon del Barrio bring its foot stomping, funk based classic salsa, plena, merengue, bomba & boogalu to the corners of the Barrios where Latinos live, work and play. Creative, musically diverse in taste while resourceful in survival, Latinos from the barrio zones have sophisticated tastes in music that is not relegated to one particular genre. Zon del Barrio emerges as one of the few orchestras to express the varied genres of Latin music from the African Diaspora and the urban streets of New York.

Born in Ensenada, Puerto Rico as the son of an amateur guitarist, Yomo Toro grew to have a five-decade career as one of New York City's most respected Latin musicians. Toro's instrument of choice was the cuatro, a Puerto Rican 10-string guitar-like instrument descended from the Spanish Vilhuela. He recorded Tribute to Arsenio with the Larry Harlow Orchestra -- an incredibly influential salsa album. Toro also got to hook up with some legends in 1970 when he recorded the classic Asalto Navideņo with Willie Colon and Hector Lavoe, combining the new sounds of NewYork salsa with traditional Puerto Rican Christmas music
