The Bronx Music Heritage Center (BMHC) is committed to preserving and promoting Bronx music, cultivating Bronx artists, spurring neighborhood revival, and providing free cultural programs for the community. For more information, email info@bronxmusic.org.

The Bronx Rising! Music, Film & Spoken Word of the Borough series is curated by City Lore award-winning folklorist Elena Martínez and Grammy-nominated Bronx musician Bobby Sanabria. Bronx Rising! programming includes Latin music & jazz, comedy, poetry and book readings, and film screenings with Q&As.

Bronx Rising! is co-sponsored by City Lore. This program is supported, in part, by public funds by the NYC Dept. of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. BMHC programming is also made possible with support from The New York Community Trust, The Kresge Foundation, Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation Cultural Innovation Fund.
