he Globe will host its tenth annual CubaLibre BlockParty, a FREE, open-air concert and festival in the heart of downtown Coral Gables along the entire 300 block of Alhambra Circle.
Celebrating Cuba’s first Independence Day of 1902, this year’s concert line-up will be headlined by Los 3 De La Habana whose vibrant and joyful style of Cuban rooted Latin fusion will have you dancing, literally, in the street. Opening the concert will be Edwin Bonilla y su Son featuring Freddy Cárdenas and Cheito Quinones. The bands powerful style of salsa, (driven by Bonilla, one of the premier percussionists in the game who has played with Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin, Madonna, Juan Luis Guerra, Marc Anthony, Cachao, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Celia Cruz and many more), is a tight blend of horns, Afro-Cuban rhythms and wide vocal arrangements resulting in deep, danceable “descargas” aimed at real salsa dancers. Rounding out the live concert will be a heartfelt “homenaje” (tribute) to Bebo Valdes whose recent passing signaled the loss of a true Cuban musical legend. This year’s block party will also feature hand-picked vintage Cuban music by MC and DJ El Russo.

    I owe you all a massive apology. I was the event host that went MIA pretty much all weekend. I am really really sorry. I will never do this again (not usually THIS much of a flake). Long story short on Saturday I just plain forgot (horrible, i know..specifically for an event organizer). I am so sorry. I hope yoh all enjoyed your weekend. Stacey, ladies, I am sorry for dropping the ball.
