Friends on Sunday August 9th, 2015, 7pm at 1807 S Allport St, Chicago, IL 60608 at the famous Thalia Hall, The Cuban salsa powerhouse Los Van Van will be performing. I have to say that I am thrilled and delighted that a group that has been the #1 Cuban salsa orchestra will play Chicago for the first time after the normalization of relations between the Cuba and the United States.
Los Van Van after more than 30 years and the loss of Juan Formell remains a cutting edge orchestra their charanga style with added horns makes it a very deep and powerful unique sound which is contagious and it will transform you, you will want more.
I will be there first as a journalist, secondly as a lover of my latin american culture and thirdly as goodwill ambassador to the Cuban people. Let’s support this!
