The Nuyorican movement is a cultural and intellectual movement involving poets, writers, musicians and artists who are Puerto Rican or of Puerto Rican descent, who live in or near New York City, and either call themselves or are known as Nuyoricans.

It originated in the late 1960s and early 1970s in neighbourhoods such as Loisaida, East Harlem, Williamsburg, and the South Bronx as a means to validate Puerto Rican experience in the United States, particularly for poor and working-class people who suffered from marginalization, ostracism, and discrimination.

The term Nuyorican was originally used as an insult until leading artists such as Miguel Algarín reclaimed it and transformed its meaning.

This will be a night of rootsy latin dance music, featuring Gonzalo Porta and his band.

Hear them live through the MIllion $$$ Sound System at Civic Underground at the hip end of Sydney CBD.
