This event has passed and sales are now closed
Ay Pachanga is back with a bang! Following sell-out shows in Sydney, and with a regional tour scheduled through NSW in June, this all-star cast returns to the Basement to celebrate the world’s largest Latin label, Fania Records, and the music that made it famous.
Founded in New York in 1964, Fania Records produced Latin music stars such as Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Ray Barreto, Willie Colon, and Ruben Blades, and showcased a melting pot of musical influences derived from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, America and Panama.
Music Director Martin Taylor (Mucho Mambo) performs with a stellar line-up of top Australian musicians performing Latin boogaloo, salsa, and mambo - the Latin sounds of the '60s and '70s. Joining them on stage are award-winning dancers in a colourful showcase, celebrating the street styles of Latin New York in the Fania era.
Tropicante Sound Sistema continue the grooves well into the night... And of course, there's a few other surprises to add to this edition.
See you on the dance floor!
"The chemistry between the dancers and the musicians immersed the audience in the world of Latin New York - and they LOVED it!" Richard Petkovic, Sydney Sacred Music Festival Director
Produced by Cadencia Productions
Music Direction - Martin Taylor
Choreography and Creative direction - Maya Martinez and El Moro
