From playing trumpet alongside Dizzy Gillespie to performing opposite Patrick Stewart in the Public Theatre's Shakespeare in the Park production of The Tempest directed by George C. Wolfe - Kamar de los Reyes has crafted a musical and acting career as rich and complex as the syncopated rhythms of his Latin roots.
A native of San Juan, Puerto Rico, Kamar de los Reyes moved to Las Vegas at the age of two and had a childhood filled with music. Kamar's father, a Cuban drummer and percussionist, would see two of his three sons become professional musicians, one a world renowned drummer, the other a world renowned percussionist. Kamar, the youngest of the brood, began playing the trumpet at the age of four and although he played alongside trumpet greats like Harry James, Doc Severinsen, and Dizzy Gillespie, Kamar chose to go another route.
Putting trumpet aside while in high school, he rediscovered the arts as a singer and dancer in a pop/jazz ensemble called Harmony Express. During his senior year, a stage role as El Gallo in The Fantastiks marked his acting debut. Throughout this same period, he studied dance at Backstage Dance Studio and performed with small musical combos. During a trip to Los Angeles to visit his brother Daniel, who was playing percussion for the Cher music video We All Sleep Alone, Kamar landed a dancing role and subsequently went on to work with Kenny Ortega in the feature "Salsa"(1998)_ and the television series "Dirty Dancing"(1988)_. Later in 2001, Kamar would work again with Kenny Ortega in the VH-1 movie "The Way She Moves"(2001)_ only this time he would work as the lead actor.
In 1989, Kamar began to focus on his acting career. Kamar finally rose to critical attention in 1994 for his portrayal of gay Irish-Mexican boxer Pedro Quinn in the Public Theatre's production of Blade to the Heat. The Associated Press praised Kamar's mesmerizing performance and a New York Times review noted the most arresting figure [in the cast] is Mr. de los Reyes.
Kamar has steadily performed alongside a virtual who's who in television, movies, stage, and music for over two decades including projects such as "E.R.", "One Life to Live" (1968)_, "Pretty Little Liars" (2010)_, "Blue Bloods" (2010)_, and "The Mentalist" (2008)_. He would star in made for television movies "The Way She Moves"(2001)_, "Undefeated"(2003)_ directed by John Leguizamoand the feature film "Salt"(2010)_, starring Angelina Jolie. Kamar is also known as the voice and face of Raul Menendez in the most popular video game franchise in video game history "Call of Duty:Black Ops II" (2010)_. Kamar has been awarded the 2008 ALMA Award for Outstanding Performance in a Daytime Drama. The American Latino Media Arts Award is a distinction awarded to Latino performers who promote positive portrayals of Latinos in the entertainment field.

Coca-Cola (often referred to simply as Coke) is a carbonated soft drink produced by The Coca-Cola Company. Originally intended as a patent medicine, it was invented in the late 19th century by John Pemberton and was bought out by businessman Asa Griggs Candler, whose marketing tactics led Coca-Cola to its dominance of the world soft-drink market throughout the 20th century. The drink's name refers to two of its original ingredients, which were kola nuts (a source of caffeine) and coca leaves. The current formula of Coca-Cola remains a trade secret, although a variety of reported recipes and experimental recreations have been published.
The Coca-Cola Company produces concentrate, which is then sold to licensed Coca-Cola bottlers throughout the world. The bottlers, who hold exclusive territory contracts with the company, produce the finished product in cans and bottles from the concentrate, in combination with filtered water and sweeteners. A typical 12-US-fluid-ounce (350 ml) can contains 38 grams (1.3 oz) of sugar (usually in the form of high fructose corn syrup). The bottlers then sell, distribute and merchandise Coca-Cola to retail stores, restaurants and vending machines throughout the world. The Coca-Cola Company also sells concentrate for soda fountains of major restaurants and foodservice distributors.
The Coca-Cola Company has on occasion introduced other cola drinks under the Coke name. The most common of these is Diet Coke, along with others including Caffeine-Free Coca-Cola, Diet Coke Caffeine-Free, Coca-Cola Cherry, Coca-Cola Zero, Coca-Cola Vanilla, and special versions with lemon, lime, and coffee. Based on Interbrand's "best global brand" study of 2015, Coca-Cola was the world's third most valuable brand. In 2013, Coke products were sold in over 200 countries worldwide, with consumers downing more than 1.8 billion company beverage servings each day.

The inescapable percussive bass of afro-tech and a subtle hint of sweaty fun consume the late night air. The crowd is in a state of flow, evidenced by their inattention to everything but dancing and music. Eyes meet and remain locked in.
Love. Art. Music.
Anané Vega has the crowd in the palm of her hands, the same ones that introduce the next sequence of sonic fuel. Her crowd’s fiery dancing is reignited and a sea of raised hands begins to clap in ritualistic unison. Her music choices are unexpected, yet beautifully curated. The scene is oddly spiritual and miles away from where the night’s commander began her journey of self-discovery.
Anané Vega was born in Cape Verde’s capital city of Praia, located on the island of Santiago, to a Portuguese father and a Cape Verdean mother. Cape Verde, a former Portuguese colony, is located off the western African coast. During the time when Cape Verde was fighting for its independence against Portugal, her family was unexpectedly uprooted after they received death threats because of their Portuguese ties, thereby forcing Anané and her family to unwillingly vacate the island. After some time in Portugal, they relocated to the United States in search of expanded opportunities.
Self-identity wasn’t an easy discovery process for Anané growing up in a foreign country. Her mix of Portuguese and Cape Verdean heritage already had produced traumatic events in her past, and now she was struggling to understand how her racial diversity fit into her new country. Additionally, her parent’s traditional values were contrary to her expectations of what she should and would become. A woman, according to traditional values, was to mind the house, raise children and not consider herself equal to men. During a childhood trip to New York City, she noted to her mother at Rockefeller Center that she would one day very much like to live in such a vibrant city. Her mother cautioned her against such impulses and reminded her of a woman’s familial duties. Rebellion against these constraining expectations was becoming a necessity.
WARNING! Before he was a Heavy Hitter, a Party Rocker or an International Club King, DJ Camilo was just a Colombian kid from Queens named Juan Camilo Sanchez. Introduced to the art of turntables at age 12, Camilo debuted his first mixtape in the 1990’s called “CAMILO Vol. 1”. Encouraged by the positive response “CAMILO Vol. 1” received, Camilo began releasing monthly mixtapes and quickly made a name for himself in the NYC club scene. In 2001, he caught the eye of DJ Enuff, who worked at the most famous hip-hop radio station in America: New York’s Hot 97. Along with the late DJ Threat, Enuff invited Camilo to join their new DJ crew called The Heavy Hitters.
After earning himself a spot on Hot 97’s roster, Camilo began hosting his own Saturday night show called “Take It to the Streets,” which was so successful that it led to an additional show on Friday nights called “The Heavy Hitter Hour.” After spotting growing interest in the Latin music market, Camilo started to blend Latin urban music into the American radio market at HOT 97 - becoming one of the first influential DJs to merge both demographics live on air. Currently, Camilo hosts Hot97's daily top programming block from 4PM to 7PM, which is the number one show in the U.S. radio market in that timeframe. Camilo also continues to reign supreme as the International Club King; his frequent club tours around the world have taken him to London, Paris, Amsterdam, Saint Tropez, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Cannes, Germany, Japan, Finland, Italy, Sweden and more.
In late 2014, Camilo cemented his status as one of the country's most in-demand DJs by signing to Roc Nation - becoming one of the first DJs to join the superstar talent roster. In January of 2016, Camilo announced a new sponsorship deal with 50 Cent's EFFEN Vodka, after several years representing CIROC as a brand ambassador. Camilo also performed at the critically acclaimed Heineken's Red Star Access Tour in New York and Philadelphia with G.O.O.D. Music's President, Pusha T.
For three consecutive years (2013, 2014 and 2015), Camilo has been named the top East Coast DJ by the Global Spin Awards. He has also been named Latin Mixx's East Coast DJ of the Year, most recently in 2010. That same year, Camilo starred with DJ Enuff and Cipha Sounds in MTV2's reality show "The Wizards NYC," which also streamed online at Hot97.com and was the subject of a full page feature in the New York Daily News. Camilo also documents his adventures as one of the most sought-after DJs in the country via his YouTube series titled, "The Warning Chronicles."
In addition to his domination of the radio waves and clubs around the world, Camilo has expanded his horizons to the hospitality industry by opening a Latin-fusion restaurant named Blend. Blend became so popular that it is now a trendy restaurant chain with two locations in Long Island City: the original Blend and sister restaurant Blend on the Water, with a third location scheduled to open in late 2016. In 2015, Camilo opened an edgy pizza shop in Long Island City called sLICe.
Camilo is a happily married father of two who continues to play multiple clubs, six nights a week in both domestic and international markets. Whether its a trendy NYC club, 60,000 fans at Hot 97’s Summer Jam or an exclusive celebrity party in Cannes, there’s nothing this Heavy Hitter can’t handle!

Dance-pop singer George Lamond was born George Garcia in Washington, D.C. on February 25, 1967. He first earned notice singing back-up for his cousin Joey Kid, with the two later teaming as Loose Touch; as a solo act, Lamond was tapped by producers Chris Barbosa and Mark Ligget to record "Bad of the Heart" for their Ligosa label, and its success on club playlists earned the singer a deal with major label Columbia. An LP, also titled Bad of the Heart, yielded two additional freestyle hits, "Without You" and "Look Into My Eyes," although a 1992 follow-up, In My Life, was less successful. It's Always You followed in 1995, and four years later Lamond resurfaced with Entrega.
Founded in 1936 by Spanish immigrants, Goya Foods, Inc. is the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States and the premier source for authentic Latin cuisine. Combined with authentic ingredients, robust seasonings and convenient preparation, Goya provides consumers with over 2,500 high-quality and affordable food products from the Caribbean, Mexico, Spain, Central and South America.
Goya has fostered a longstanding history in leading the culinary culture of Latin cuisine in the United States, while solidifying its position as an iconic symbol beginning in New York. The company’s commitment to excellence is the cornerstone of Goya’s popular credo, “If It’s Goya, It Has To Be Good”. The result of this simple, yet deeply resonant pledge is the evolution of Goya Foods as a leader in the Latin American food industry and a trusted American brand.
The history and story of Goya is as much about the importance of family and values as it is about achieving the American dream and helping to cultivate the Latin culture in the United States. In 1936, Don Prudencio Unanue and his wife Carolina, immigrants who first migrated to Puerto Rico from Spain, started Goya in a small storefront on Duane Street in Lower Manhattan. Driven by the belief that there was a growing consumer market for high-quality, fresh-tasting, Latin foods, the Unanues catered to local Hispanic families by distributing authentic Spanish products including olives, olive oil and sardines.
Emerging from the South Bronx in the early 1970s, Grandmaster Flash is inarguably one of Hip Hop’s original innovators. In the earliest days of the genre, he manipulated music by placing his fingers on the vinyl, perfected beat looping, and discovered many of the most iconic beats still commonly sampled today. It’s no surprise that The New York Times calls him Hip Hop’s first virtuoso.
Today, he’s the voice of an entire generation of 1970s hip hop pioneers. From his electric live shows, to his production role on Netflix’ The Get Down, Grandmaster Flash is at once a historian, a storyteller, and a cultural force.

While the name may suggest a laid-back, exurban rusticity, this uptown eatery is decidedly citified, set between the soaring steel arches of the Riverside Drive Viaduct and an elevated Amtrak line, rumbling trains included. The place is spacious, with a ground floor lounge/bar, upstairs dining room, outdoor patio, and terrace. White painted walls, walnut floors, white Corian–topped tables, and an expansive cathedral ceiling evoke a posh beach house. The seasonal menu puts seafood at center stage, from raw bar offerings to seviches, fine paella, and grilled fish. Chef/partner Ricardo Cardona, formerly of Jimmy’s Bronx Cafe and now also at Lua in Hoboken, adds Latin dishes, as well as Asian seasonings, in dishes like a unique, arresting calamari salad that tosses the tiny, petite deep-fried rings in a sweet and savory ginger dressing, amped with Thai chili peppers. The whole spicy tangle crowns a healthy heap of organic watercress, radish sprouts, peanuts, banana slices, and toasted pine nuts. While just short of sublime, Hudson River Café, which opened in May 2007, is certainly a jewel in Harlem’s culinary crown.
John Benitez was born in South Bronx, New York city, back in 1959. His family lived in an apartment on Burnside Avenue in the Bronx, and his sister Debbie was the one who gave him his nickname - Jellybean. Already as a child he used to entertain his family and friends by playing them different records on the turntable. He started his DJ career in 1975 in a club in the Bronx, called Charlie's. But he really wanted to go further... he wanted to work in the famous Manhattan clubs. He got a gig at a club called Experiment 4 and by getting the right contacts he came to play at the trendy Xenon. This was really a break-through for his career. During 1978 to 1981 all the hottest clubs, like Electric Circus and the legendary Studio 54, all wanted to hire Jellybean to play in their club.

McDonald's (or simply as McD) is an American hamburger and fast food restaurant chain. It was founded in 1940 as a barbecue restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald. In 1948, they reorganized their business as a hamburger stand, using production line principles. The first McDonald's franchise using the arches logo opened in Phoenix, Arizona in 1953. Businessman Ray Kroc joined the company as a franchise agent in 1955 and subsequently purchased the chain from the McDonald brothers. Based in Oak Brook, Illinois, McDonald's confirmed plans to move its global headquarters to Chicago by early 2018.
Today, McDonald's is one of the world's largest restaurant chains, serving approximately 68 million customers daily in 119 countries across approximately 36,615 outlets. McDonald's primarily sells hamburgers, cheeseburgers, chicken products, french fries, breakfast items, soft drinks, milkshakes, wraps, and desserts. In response to changing consumer tastes, the company has expanded its menu to include salads, fish, wraps, smoothies, and fruit.

I was born July 29, 1973, in San Francisco de Macoris, Dominican Republic. At an early age, my family moved to New York City and we resided in the Washington Heights community of Manhattan, where I was raised and attended school. I have seven sisters and two brothers and more than 31 nieces and nephews. I have two sons, Jarred and Justin and a daughter Victoria.
During my teen years I was always involved in competitive sports, e.g. baseball, basketball and football, which were a natural transition to weight training. My first serious training partner was Stephen Dickerson. Steve saw my potential in becoming a serious contender in the sport of professional bodybuilding. He was instrumental in persuading me to pursue professional bodybuilding as a career. I am truly grateful for his continued unconditional support. My brother... my friend…

NJPAC started in 1986 as just a grand plan, a belief voiced by then-Governor Thomas H. Kean that New Jersey deserved its own world-class performing arts center. Ultimately it was decided there was no better place for a Jersey arts center to take root than in Downtown Newark; a building that would not only host the world’s greatest performers, but also act as the catalyst for revitalizing the state’s largest city.
After critical public sector support and an unprecedented wave of philanthropy from individuals, corporations and foundations, NJPAC broke ground in 1993 on the site of the former Military Park Hotel. Architect Barton Myers designed the building, with Newark’s industrial heritage as inspiration. A momentous opening celebration on October 18, 1997 included the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Tango X2, Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Chita Rivera, Savion Glover and American Ballet Theatre. The performance later aired on PBS’ Great Performances.

Anthony George Douglas Mason is a retired American National Basketball Association player. He averaged 10.8 points and 8.3 rebounds in his 13-year NBA career. Mason, who played primarily the power forward position despite his relatively diminutive stature (he stood at 6' 7" (2.01 m)), compensated his lack of size by his impressive musculature, which made him one of the most feared defensive players in the league.

Mason’s long and accomplished basketball career includes a five-year stint with the New York Knicks.

Following years of enterprising activity on stage and in the community, Pregones Theater and Puerto Rican Traveling Theater recently merged into a single Latino arts organization with performance venues in The Bronx and Manhattan. The transformation builds upon congruence of mission, values, and programs, and sustained engagement of a growing network of diverse artists and audiences throughout and beyond New York City. Moving forward, Pregones/PRTT champions a cultural legacy of broad impact through (1) creation and performance of original musical theater and plays rooted in Puerto Rican/Latino cultures, and (2) presentation of other artists who share our twin commitment to the arts and civic enrichment.
Pregones Theater was founded in 1979 when a group of actors led by Rosalba Rolón set out to create new theater works in the style of Caribbean and Latin American “colectivos” or performing ensembles. In the beginning, the group toured plays in Spanish to underserved communities throughout New York City, the Tri State area, and up the Eastern states to Philadelphia and Boston. Established soon after as a Bronx company, and now boasting 80 premieres in English and Spanish, 350 visiting artist presentations, and more than 500 touring credits, Pregones is widely acknowledged as a leader and innovator in the arts.
The Puerto Rican Traveling Theater was founded in 1967, following the highly successful run of the first English-language production of La carreta/The Ox Cart, the classic drama of Puerto Rican migration by René Marqués. The play starred two rising stars that went on to become legends of stage and film: Raul Julia and Miriam Colón. Seeing how live theater was beyond the reach of most working families in New York at the time, Ms. Colón also set out to take the play to the streets. Under her leadership, the PRTT soon emerged as a beacon of the bilingual theater movement in the U.S., launching countless professional careers and introducing dozens of important playwrights to the American theater.
