We opened El Taller in 1979 with the music and poetry of El Topo. Now more than ever we honor El Topo's musical message of cultural dignity. This Sunday El Barrio receives El Topo through El Taller Latino Americano to give him the Chaski Award. Join us for this celebration
of El Topo's music and Puerto Rican culture.
Antonio Caban Vale aka. El Topo is a singer, composer and guitarist widely celebrated for his Puerto Rican folkloric anthems. His song Verde Luz is recognized as a symbol of Puerto Rican dignity and is viewed by many as a second national anthem. This Sunday, El Topo returns to El Taller Latino Americano for a night of folkloric pride and song.
