Kick up your heels! Sydney is Open for Dancing! Hit the dance floor with a twenty piece all star band! Come Mambo and Cha Cha Cha with Palacio de la Rumba Australia’s only Afro-Cuban Orquesta with dancers from Sydney’s first Mambo Academy, Dance Mambo directed by Adrian Medina.
Palacio de la Rumba’s diverse, dynamic performances keep the Latin big band tradition alive. Built on the Afro-Caribbean past, Latin Jazz is a major force shaping contemporary Australian musical culture.
Palacio de la Rumba will mine the imaginative, spontaneous, improvisatory interplay that is the beating heart of every Latin Jazz performance. They will explore the Afro-Cuban motherlode with music by Elio Villafranca, Gai Bryant, George Russell, Rebeca Mauleón, Chano Pozo and Wayne Wallace alongside a parade of stellar guests including John Hoffman, James Greening, Giorgio Rojas, Juan Carlos Allende, Daniel Pliner, Adrian Medina and the Dance Mambo.
The club’s dedicated dance floor will pulsate with the sounds of bomba, cha cha chá, traditional Afro-Cuban rhythms and classic Cuban music styles. This is a night of celebration for the universal power of rhythm and the beauty of Afro-Caribbean culture. Tickets are available for under 18’s accompanied by an adult.
