Ay Pachanga is the Latin party of the year! Following sell-out shows in Sydney, Ay Pachanga celebrates the world’s largest Latin label, Fania Records, transforming your venue into a buzzing party filled with Latin-Jazz and salsa rhythms.
Music Director Martin Taylor (Mucho Mambo) is returning with his stellar lineup of top Australians musicians performing famous Latin sounds of the ’60s and ’70s – Latin boogaloo, salsa, and mambo. Joining them on stage are award winning dancers in a colourful showcase, celebrating the street styles of Latin New York in the Fania era.
Fania Records is renowned for housing some of the greatest pioneers of Salsa music, a style of music that was born in New York in the 60s and 70s that fused musical genres such as Cuban Son, Mambo and Latin Jazz. Some of the label’s artists include Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Ray Barreto, Willie Colon, and Ruben Blades (just to name a few) and showcased a melting pot of musical influences derived from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, America and Panama.
Come and join us at the Italo Club in North Lismore for a Workshop starting at 6PM, followed by the Performance at 7:30PM. See you on the dance floor!
