Hip Hop Hoodíos @ The Salute To Israel Parade

Further evidence that Latin hip-hop knows no cultural boundaries, Latino-Jewish urban music collective Hip Hop Hoodios will be performing at the Salute to Israel Parade in New York City along Fifth Avenue on Sunday, June 5th. The annual parade is a non-partisan, non-political celebration of the existence of the State of Israel and a tribute to its people and their achievements. One-hundred thousand marchers and close to one-million spectators take part in this event annually. This year marks the first time that a prominent Latin act has been booked to perform at the Parade. Hip Hop Hoodios are currently touring in support of their critically-acclaimed full length debut "Agua Pa' La Gente", which includes members of The Klezmatics, Santana, Midnight Minyan and Jaguares as guests.

The Parade route begins at 57th Street and Fifth Avenue and continues north on Fifth Avenue to 79th Street.

The Parade takes place each year, from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM Rain or Shine.
