Bloomington's Latin Music Night spices up the night!
The show features a mix of the best Twin Cities Cuban and Salsa Music. Authentic food vendors will be on site to take care of your dinner plans.
- Charanga Tropical (7:00 PM) – Charanga Tropical is a nine-piece ensemble featuring three violins, flute, and a sizzling Latin rhythm section. Using an instrumentation that dates back to the roots of the music in Cuba, Charanga Tropical blends the old with the new to create a sound that is classic yet modern. Music that is rich in harmony and melody, fantastic for listening and superb for dancing. The repertoire of Charanga Tropical features rarely heard danzones and a spicy variety of son, salsa, cha cha cha, and timba. The members of the group include master musicians from Cuba, Brazil, Mexico, and the United States. Their collective accomplishments include tours to Asia, Europe, and South America, platinum recordings, doctorate degrees, and multiple Latin Grammy nominations.
- La Gran Charanga (8:30 PM) – What happens when you take the Twin City's premier Cuban Charanga band and add a blazing five piece horn section? La Gran Charanga! This new band on the Twin Cities Latin music scene will accompany you as you dance the night away!
Bring a lawn chair and get ready to dance to the music! I will be there at 6:00 PM for socializing before the show.
