GRAMMY-nominated, Newark-born sonero Frankie Negrón , one of today’s leading tropical vocalists, weaves elements of pop, rock, gospel, R&B, hip-hop and reggaetón into his distinctive salsa sound. His first studio album, Con Amor Se Gana , went gold, as did his follow-up, No Me Compares. In total, Negrón has earned nine Billboard Top 40 Hot Latin Tracks for his best-selling recordings. Also performing at this edition of Horizon Foundation Sounds of the City is the high-energy, New York-based Latin band, Funk Salsa Urban , an ensemble that fuses basic salsa rhythms with touches of funk and urban music to create a unique inner-city sound. The popular Jersey-based Latin band Grupo Warachando opens the performance.
