Charanga Tropical is the first American ensemble ever invited to perform at the prestigious International Danzón Festival in Havana, Cuba. The biannual festival celebrates the musical style of danzón and features the top charanga bands in Cuba.
From June 24th to 30th, 2015 Charanga Tropical will perform festival concerts at venues throughout the city. All shows will be professionally recorded. A single session in a Havana studio will also be recorded. The music will be later edited, mixed and mastered for the CD 'Charanga Tropical - Live from Havana.'
The Danzón Festival is thrilled that an American group will perform this year and we're equally excited about all the interaction we'll have with Cuban musicians, dancers, and other festival participants.
