Local favorite trio Tres Souls, led by vocalist Rocio Libertad, will open the night singing classics like “Sabor A Mi,” “Piel Canela,” “Historia De Un Amor,” and more.
Boleros De Noche is a musical and cultural experience, launched by Los Angeles cultural promoter Roberto Carlos, that seeks to preserve, uplift, and celebrate Latin American bolero music history in Los Angeles, and is quickly garnering multi-generational audiences who enjoy and partake in this musical experience.
