El Festival Colombiano took place at the Pico Rivera Sports Arena on July 17, 2011. This is one of the biggest South American festivals in Southern California. Thousands of people flooded the venue to eat, drink, and of course dance in the sun to the beat of vallenato and salsa music.
How do I begin to describe what an experience it was to watch salsa’s original gangster, Mr. Willie Colon himself playing live in front of me. Willie graced Los Angeles with his musical talents on July 16, 2011 at the Radisson Hotel.
The Shingalings, composed by a great group of talented musicians, had everyone dancing at this small but cozy bar. The set included various styles of tropical from salsa, to cumbia to boogaloo. Definitely look forward to seeing this band again. Check out the photos!
Aniceto Molina came to Los Angeles with full force on February 26, 2011. Other performers such as Los Hermanos Rosario and Toño Rosario also pleased the restless crowd. Toño Rosario warmed up the stage with his contagious merengue. The crowd swarmed towards the stage, to get up close and personal with this long-time favorite artist.
The Conga room continues to bring great talent and on this night, direct from Cuba, Los Van Van performed to a sold out crowd. Our friends at The Conga Room shared some wonderful photos of the event. For those in attendance this was clearly an unforgettable night.
A great night of music is guaranteed with La Santa Cecilia. Their CD release party in Los Angeles brought out many of their long-time followers for a night of tropical sounds and fun remixes. Check out the photos.
