There's so much to know about the evolution of Latin music. The first exhibit in 2017 was just a snippet of a timeline. Mercado Project: The Man Behind The Music ™ is a journey through a significant 50 year span: touching upon the politics, the social life, the culture and the economics of it all.
Our Pop Up Exhibit transcends the historic time period of the Salsa Explosion, from one of it's heaviest promotors, the legendary Ralph Mercado, through the eyes of his daughter Damaris L Mercado.
Beyond the music, MERCADO PROJECT: The Man Behind The Music ™ highlights the passion, grit and perseverance of a visionary and pioneer, and the many examples of entrepreneurship of a man who took active steps towards “Making IT Happen”.
This video is a snippet of an exhibit held at Museum Village in the Mid-Huson Valley region of New York. It is a walk through reflection of the day & the people who came through to explore, learn, share knowledge and experiences as fans, and support the cause.
