New York City’s Colombian scene swings into full effect for this annual festival. This year's event, the seventh, features guest of honor Toto la Momposina as well as performances by Gregorio Uribe Big Band, Marta Gomez, Samuel Torres and others.

What this festival reveals are the savvy evolutions that New Yorkers have impressed upon forms like the fandango, cumbia and vallenato.
