Luis Mario Ochoa is kind of Toronto’s “Nat King Cole” of Cuban son… but he brings the full Cuban tumbao to Lula with his Cuba Tradicional. This will be a good show… for those stay away from live shows and complain it’s the same bands doing the same songs, here’s a change!
$10 at the door or book a table for our $45 dinner and show package.
Admission includes our famous beginner’s dance lesson (no partner necessary) at 8 PM + Luis Mario Ochoa and Cuba Tradicional starting at 10PM and dancing all night long with Toronto’s best DJs!
