Sonora Ponceña's "Don Quique" Honored At Lehman College

This weekend, the Lehman Center for the Performing Arts in the Bronx will host the Sonora Ponceña for a concert honoring the group's founder, Enrique “Quique” Lucca Caraballo.  La Sonora is one of Latin music's most enduring bands thanks in large part to hits such as Fuego en el 23.  The band is also famous, of course, because its long-ago guitarist was Filiberto Ojeda Rios, the Puerto Rican nationalist whose death in 2005, at the hands of FBI agents, outraged many Puerto Ricans.
