Music Beyond Borders: Revisit the World with us – Grupo Sabor’s Colombian salsa spurs dancing

Although the coronavirus likely prevents us from presenting Music Beyond Borders this summer, we thought you might enjoy revisiting some of the wonderful moments from past performances.

For  10 years, Music Beyond Borders, a collaboration between Morris Arts and Mayo Performing Arts Center has offered this summer series of free outdoor programs of world music and dance….bringing a taste of cultures from six continents to summer lunchtimes on the Morristown Green.

So, let’s take a trip down memory lane and sample some of the past delights of Music Beyond BordersJuly 9, 2019 featured Armando Son Jimenez’ Grupo Sabor (Colombian Salsa)

July 9, 2019:  Armando Son Jimenez’ Grupo Sabor (Colombian Salsa) 
Since he migrated to the USA more than 25 years ago, Jorge Armando Jimenez (aka Sonjimenez or Sonji) has performed with top salsa musicians at prominent venues from NYC’s B.B. Kings to Club Tropicana in Milan, Italy. His trio, Grupo Sabor, has a hot, tropical swing which combines hard salsa, some Cuban stile, romantic salsa and cumbia. Celebrate summer with the hot Latin rhythms of this fabulous salsa trio.

The perfect sunny weather, complete with a breeze, attracted nearly 400 people to the Morristown Green on July 9th and the Green became the site of a joyful intergenerational salsa dance party, inspired by the music of Grupo Sabor!
