Segunda Quimbamba is directed by Juan Cartagena who is recognized as a Master Folk Artist by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. The band has been doing this show for the past 3 years and this is always the biggest show of the year! Though we cannot gather together this year, we can still get together online and be inspired by Segunda Quimbamba! Watch them live online on the Perth Amboy Artworks Facebook page.
