The Bronx Music Heritage Center (BMHC) will lead a parranda – the Puerto Rican tradition involving processions of carolers – in the Melrose section of the Bronx. Based on the music of plena, and other holiday songs from Puerto Rico, the parade will make stops at different casitas – the little houses that evoke those on the countryside in Puerto Rico – including El Coquí, Jardin de la Roca, Latinos Unidos, Rainbow Casita. It concludes at the casita renowned for its musical legacy, Rincón Criollo Centro Cultural, aka “La Casita de Chema.”
