Eya Aranla at Lincoln Center 8/5/01

Ms Marta Moreno Vega and her wonderful organization the Caribbean Cultural Center have staged many great concerts using Lincoln Center as their venue. One such performance included Milton Cardona's EYA ARANLA. The members of the band included Willie Williams on sax, Papo Vasquez on bone, Dave Valentin on flute, Cucho Martinez on bass, Prof. Joe Torres on Piano, Jose Fernandez on Okonkolo, Woochie Holiday on Iya and his brother (Iyawo at the time) Abie Holiday on Itotele. The coro consisted of Sandra Fela Wiles, Yomi Yomi and Carol Robinson. Milton's son Sergio is on clave and maraca. I remember that day because it was over 100 degrees in that plaza. You will even hear me comment about it. Summer in the big city.
