PERDIDA EN MANHATTAN

"Ricky" - Vid by Will Robson-Scott (London born photographer & occasional video maker)

This film meets Ricky Powell, a native New Yorker whose photographs of iconic people such as the Beastie Boys, Keith Haring and Cindy Crawford made him a pivotal figure in the downtown party scene during the ’80s and ’90s. Now 50, Ricky’s lust for photography and music is still strong. 

Through his eccentricities such as his love for a transistor radio and feeding squirrels in the park, we gain an insight into his everyday life. Retrospective of New York City and how it has changed over his lifetime, he shows us around the city and contemplates what the future holds.

Latin Grammy Street Party @ Inwood Hill Park This Sunday


“As we celebrate another great year of amazing music we are proud to bring the excitement of the Latin GRAMMY to cities across the country through our annual Latin GRAMMY Street Parties,” said Gabriel Abaroa, President of The Latin Recording Academy. “These festivals allow us to create a bond between music lovers and the Latin GRAMMYs, through the power of music, and the talented artists that make an impression along the way and we look forward to another successful year.”
The Latin GRAMMY Street Parties capture the excitement surrounding the Latin GRAMMY Awards by offering an interactive traveling festival for Hispanics, which includes live entertainment, sponsor display areas, and product sampling. This leading national Latin music festival series continues to feature performances by some of Latin music’s established artists, while serving as a launching platform for emerging talent representing various genres, including reggaeton, regional Mexican, pop, rock en Espanol, and tropical among others.



This Sunday, from 1 to 6 pm, Inwood Hill Park will play host to Merengue superstars Los Hermanos Rosario, Eddy Herrera and Spanish Rockers Delexilio. The last band featured on this bill reminds me a lot of this other alternative Spanish rock band (they were a lot like the Beastie Boys pero en español) and were on heavy rotation on MTV Internacional. If any of my followers are old enough to remember this band or know what the hell I’m talking about, please feel free to drop me a note/link in my inbox. Muchas gracias. :)
