The multicultural destination of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico will soon host the 1st annual Salsa Festival “Fiesta Latina.” Scheduled to start at 7 pm on May 4th, 2008, at Sr. Frog’s, Venustiano Carranza #218 in the Romantic Zone, this “Latin Party” is just one of the many cultural events scheduled this May.
Four famous and Internationally recognized salsa orchestras, Adolescent’s Orquesta de Venezuela, Estrellas de Niche de Cali, Colombia, Chemaney y su Orquesta de México, Tino y su Feeling, whose vocalist is from Venezuela and the rest of the orchestra are talented Mexican musicians.
There will also be spectacular dance performances by local entertainers, bringing the total to over 70 artists to be performing on stage. This is the first time this musical genere will be represented as part of the Puerto Vallarta cultural schedule in its anniversary month of May.
The First Salsa Festival Fiesta Latina is the brainchild of two young business women; one from La Habana, Cuba and the other from Caracas, Venezuela both of whom have been residents of Puerto Vallarta for several years. Brought together by their mutual love for latin music, they combined their ideas to form their company Fiesta Latina Producciones.
After a couple of month designing the project, their dream came true. They are counting on the support of government officials and on the commitment of talented local representatives of the Latin culture like musicians, dancers, designers and an endless list of artists to help them keep the dream alive.
Fiesta Latina Producciones is looking to combine the different Latin communities from different countries that live in Puerto Vallarta, not only the Cubans and Venezuelans, but also the communities that are growing like Argentinian, Colombian, Chilean and Dominicans, among others.
They are hoping that this event will not only make a huge impact in the Puerto Vallarta community, but will also become a permanent part of the city’s traditional Anniversary Celebration, which draws approximately 10,000 people, including locals and visitors, to Puerto Vallarta each May.
