THE BRONX - A new musical, The Harlem Hellfighters on a Latin Beat, is coming to the Bronx Friday starring famed Puerto Rican singer Danny Rivera.

The history-inspired piece covers the nearly forgotten tale of how some of the first collaborations between African-American ragtime and jazz artists and Latin musicians came to be. It?s loosely based on 16 Puerto Rican musicians who played - and fought - with the Army band of the decorated all-black 369th Infantry in World War I.

Harlem Hellfighters will have a limited two-week run until Nov. 21 at Pregones Theater. Tickets are $36-$45
