Salseros del Barrio

For the past several weeks I've been working on a few things (logo, poster, ticket, website) for the Salseros del Barrio. They are a student Latin Jazz band put together about 4 years ago by Pavel Polanco-Safadit for the students at Indianapolis Public Schools. It focuses not only on developing cultural pride, self-esteem, and musical talent but also to keep kids in school.

I'm very proud of the progress they have made, not only because of all the presentations and media acclaim they've had, but because the students have improved their attendance and grades.

On May 11, the Salseros will be having a concert, together with Direct Contact, a professional Latin Jazz band, to raise funds for purchasing instruments and other expenses. If you're interested in supporting them email silvan@ips.k12.in.us.
