In the interest of ensuring the safety of our community, El Museo del Barrio has made the decision to temporarily close, effective Friday, March 13 at 6pm. Albeit difficult, we arrived to this conclusion, bearing in mind what is best for the health and wellness of our visitors and staff, which is our top priority. The Museum’s administrative offices will remain open with remote access by staff. With this closure, El Museo del Barrio will also be postponing all programming, until further notice.

El Museo del Barrio, in partnership with Carnegie Hall Citywide is delighted to present a live performance by artist Maluca Mala. Her inspiring lyrics, sung in Spanish and English, encourage Afro-Latinas to be proud of their identity, push against European beauty standards, and reject gender stereotypes. Fusing hip-hop and merengue—a dance rooted in her Dominican heritage—with electronic dance music, Maluca Mala has dubbed her style “experimental tropical punk, ghetto tech, and hip-house.” It’s won her a large fan base, including Grammy-nominated singer Robyn, with whom she recently collaborated.
FREE ADMISSION. First-come, First-served.
Concert is a part of Super Sábado! Family Day at El Museo. Details coming soon!
