ELITO REVÉ y su CHARANGÓN Friday October 1 2010 at The COURTHOUSE 57 Adelaide street East Toronto (limited capacity)
For the first time in Toronto the Revé musical dynasty touches down ! This is the fountain of the Cuban salsa… the band that most of the famous bands come from. Including Los Van Van: before Juan Formell started Los Van Van, he was a member of its precursor Orquesta Revé. Everybody danced to Mi Salsa Tiene Sandunga, which became the theme song of Cuba’s most successful music TV show of all time, Mi Salsa. The son of Elio, Elito is in charge now… and the band is called el Charangón. And the hits continue…
