    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.

    Bloco AfroBrazil, led by associate professor Mikael Ringquist and alumnus Marcus Santos, is a 12-piece percussion ensemble with an interactive show that combines traditional Brazilian grooves like samba and axé with funk, rock, jazz, and hip-hop.

    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.
