East Harlem Television Program to Feature Local Mariachi School


New York, NY 3/21/11 The Mariachi Academy of New York, located on East 117th Street, is front and center in episode 12 of eHarlemTV, a monthly hyper-local news series spotlighting the people, places and events of East Harlem and its neighbors. The program airs this Tuesday, March 22, at 9 PM on MNN 4, Time Warner Channel 67, and will re-air on Brooklyn’s B-Cat and the Bronxnet on dates to be announced.

Never before has the Manhattan community of East Harlem received exclusive news coverage that brings its story to the world. With eHARLEMTV, this vibrant enclave – also known as El Barrio, Spanish Harlem and SpaHa – joins the micro-news revolution taking place in cities around the country. Hosted by broadcasting veteran Fred Noriega and introducing actress Lorraine Rodriguez, the half-hour magazine format show features new segments monthly.

“Only a tragedy in East Harlem makes the news,” says George Rivera, creator of eHARLEMTV. “Unlike other news outlets, eHARLEMTV reports all of the things that make this a neighborhood with a story to tell"

In addition to visiting the Mariachi Academy as students rehearse traditional Mexican compositions for a Christmas-themed fundraiser held last December at El Museo del Barrio, this month’s episode of eHarlemTV will feature rousing performances by young people, teachers, folkloric dancers and other special guests, including Maestro Rafael Palomar. The bilingual program also includes a visit to the East Harlem home of one of the stars of the academy - an 8 year-old phenomenon named Chelsea.
