    The Tito Puente Latin Music Series takes place in July and August at outdoor locations across Boston. The six-concert series is an infectious soundscape of salsa, bolero, danzón, Afro-Latin, Caribbean, jazz, funk, R&B, and more. Performers include Berklee faculty, students, alumni, and world-renowned artists from Puerto Rico, Cuba, Ecuador, Brazil, and throughout Latin America.

    Mango Blue blends Afro-Latin and world music to create songs of celebration with a social conscience. Led by Ecuadorian composer, bassist, singer, and Berklee alumnus Alex Alvear, the group playfully integrates a wide array of influences, from R&B, jazz, and funk to Caribbean and Afro-Latin music -- a stylistic fusion that transcends ethnic boundaries, providing new colors in the Latin music palette.

    The Tito Puente Latin Music Series is presented by Berklee College of Music, Villa Victoria Center for the Arts, ParkARTS, and the Mayor's Office of Arts, Tourism, and Special Events. The series is part of Berklee's Summer in the City, which features over 100 free outdoor concerts throughout the Boston area from June to September. As presenting sponsor of the 2012 concert series, Natixis Global Asset Management is committed to preserving cultural experience through the power of music.
