Annual Caribbean Benefit Concert

Transdiaspora Network is hosting its 2nd Annual Caribbean Benefit Concert as an opportunity to extend the organization's mission to the general public and to raise the awareness of HIV prevention in the community.  

The event will send a needed remainder to New York City, and its youngest population in particular, about the urgency to be more proactive on the HIV prevention topic. It will be also a magnificent ocassion to symbolically welcome President Obama's appointee Jeffrey S. Crowley as the head the Office of National AIDS Policy, the White House Office tasked with coordinating the continuing efforts of the government to reduce the number of HIV infections across the United States and coordinating care for those with the disease. 

For the occasion, Cuban singer-songwriter Pavel Urkiza, from Gema & Pavel duo, recognized as "an exception to the current musical creative drought" on the world music scene, will be playing with the Caribbean Subway. This project rediscovers old traditions and instruments from the Caribbean creating a sonorous color World Music style.
