ABOUT BOLEROS DE NOCHE:
L.A. cultural promoter Roberto Carlos launched the Boleros De Noche music series in 2015 in an effort to promote Latin American Bolero music history in Los Angeles. The series is committed to the coordination of quality cultural events that convene an intergenerational audience to share live Bolero music. For the past 3 years Boleros De Noche has been presented at The Ford, a historic 1,200 seat outdoor theater nestled in the Hollywood hills, and during those past three years Boleros De Noche has sold out the venue every single time.
Created by cultural promoter Roberto Carlos, the series seeks to preserve, uplift, and celebrate Latin American Bolero music history in Los Angeles and is quickly garnering multi-generational audiences. Now in its seventh year, the series is curated by its founder. An Oaxacan immigrant, Roberto Carlos, is a young Los Angeles-based artist/culture promoter who founded the series and has committed his musical journey to Bolero music and its traditions.
Trio romantic Bolero music features the guitar, the complex instrumentation of a requinto (a smaller guitar typically tuned a fifth higher than a standard guitar), romantic lyrics and lush harmonies. It is considered by many to be the most romantic music genre of Latin America. The genre originated in Cuba in 1883 but gained international notoriety once the genre reached Mexico in the 1940s.
ABOUT THE FORD:
The Ford is a music venue in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. The 1,200-seat outdoor amphitheater is situated within the Cahuenga Pass within the Santa Monica Mountains.
