Listen Up: Tony Arreaza and Davey Blackburn Talk CLT Latin Music on 'Local Vibes'

Posted By on Thu, Aug 17, 2017 at 10:41 AM



Tony Arreaza has been working to cultivate Charlotte's Latin music scene for more than two decades, and he's recently teamed up with local experimental musician Davey Blackburn to spread the music more widely. We chatted it up with the duo about their regular Latin Night in Plaza Midwood event at Snug Harbor, and the recent growth they've witnessed in the local Latin music scene as well as how music and arts can play a big role in today's political climate.
