If you were one of the 2,000 who danced to Los Van Van into the wee hours, when they were brought to town by Okokan productions in November of 2010 or December of 2006… be warned this is a different story. Plan to get there EARLY or you will not get your full dose of The Dance Machine of Cuba! This concert is part of the bigger PanAmerican festival . There will be another concert at 9.30pm right after Los Van Van .
This is the real deal… the biggest band in Cuba for 40-plus years…
The original salsa, and still the most creative and eclectic dance music in the world comes from Cuba… and this is the best of the best… Los Van Van.
This is their first tour since the recent, untimely death of founder and leader Juan Formell… and it’s the finest selection of singers and musicians imaginable… the famous songs… the music makes the people get up in dance… in hot climates or cold ones!
