“I feel blessed to perform my original music at the National Jazz Museum in Harlem produced by Jazz Power Initiative. The invitation to showcase my fusion of Dominican roots music in this incredible and historical space was irresistible. I will be playing compositions from both of my albums Kijombo & Mezclansa, while featuring special guests, dancing and more!” – Yasser Tejeda, award-winning Dominican composer, guitarist, vocalist, and producer.
