Fiesta Latina!

Here it is! The NZ Festival event you've been waiting for!

Fiesta Latina!

"Feel the earth move to the Latin groove of the Festival with performances by Cuban dancers, singers and musicians from Cutmba and Cutmba Septeto, the Cuban group Vocal Baobab, percussion group Pandemonium and Australia's erth." (Quoted from The Out & About, NZ Festival booklet)

Fiesta Latina will also feature some of our favourite local Latin entertainment: demonstrations by Salsa Bomba (featuring Salsa Magic) and music by Zamba Flam.

Come along to this awesome free event at Harcourt Park, Upper Hutt (Akatarawa Rd, off State Highway 2) and be part of the amazing atmosphere!

Starting at 12pm and finishing around 5pm, Salsa Bomba are performing around 1pm.

If it is raining the alternative venue will be at Lane Park Auditorium, 16 Lane Street, Wallaceville, Upper Hutt. Please listen to 91ZM radio station that morning for an update on the venue.

It'll be a great day of Latin music, song and dance!
