Best of London Salsa: A Legend in London - 14 July 08

OSCAR D’LEON - THE SALSA LEGEND
WHO ROCKED THE ROUNDHOUSE

Celebrating his 65th birthday the day before and sharing the stage with his son Yorman and World Salsa Champions Jhon and Judy, Oscar D’Leon whipped up the 2,000 strong crowd into a frenzy at the Roundhouse in Camden on Saturday night (12th July).
           After 5 years absence from the capital, this concert was a long time coming. At his last gig - cut short so if you blinked, you missed it - his fans were left hungry. This time was always going to be different - El Sonero Mayor "The Great Improviser" and his huge Venezuelan band weren’t going to let a fag paper get between them and their audience. Oscar delivered a muscular, charismatic, power house of a performance that rocked the Roundhouse to its foundations. It was a huge night, a massive Latin party blow out, fuelled by one of the world’s finest salsa singers and bandleaders - and sexiest 65 year old’s on the planet.

SALSA KINGDOM LAUNCHES IN THE NORTH; £100 DISCOUNTED DANCE PASS TIL 15 JULY

SALSA KINGDOM HAS RENEWED ITS £100 EARLY BIRD OFFER TIL 15th JULY SO THERE’S STILL TIME TO GET YOUR 3 DAY DANCE PASS AT A BARGAIN PRICE.
             Salsa Kingdom features some of the world’s finest salsa dancers, 50 hrs of dance workshops and breath-taking new shows  – to be seen for the first time in the UK. Setting out to create an authentic Latin vibe and flava, live music comes direct from New York from the legendary Eddie Palmieri and his Salsa Orchestra and the New Swing Sextet.
             Over 1,000 salsa lovers from across the UK and the world are expected to descend on the first ever Salsa Kingdom at Camelot Theme Park, Charnock Richard, Lancashire from Friday 5th to Sunday 7th September 2008.  Big attractions are three days and nights of non-stop partying, to the most uplifting, infectious music around, from Friday evening til Monday morning! The Festival climaxes in a massive fireworks display on Sunday night, celebrating the life of the Queen of Salsa, Celia Cruz.
            
Billed as a “Fun Festival”, the organisers aim to create a total Latin experience in the UK, with the whole resort given over to dance workshops, late night parties, Latin themed restaurants and bars, plus Salsation -
a new 40 minute dance spectacular by New York’s finest dance stars.

           Headliners include: leading New York choreographer, dancer and performer Maria Torres and her dance company (salsa/mambo, Latin jazz and more); Susana Montero (UK); from Puerto Rico, Tito & Tamara; twice salsa world champion Rafael del Busto Cuni (Cuba & UK); World Hustle Champions Kelvin Roche and Lori Ann Greenhouse; Adrian & Anita (Spain), Spanish salsa and Puerto Rican champions; Cuban salsa specialist Moe Flex; Leon Rose (UK); more tbc.
           Top DJs include Henry Knowles (New York) Lubi, Julian “The Duke”, Mauricio Reyes (UK) and Pepe Bassan (Italy). With 50 hours of dance workshops, there will be something for all levels of ability, from absolute beginners to advanced dancers.
           At Salsa Kingdom, the emphasis is as much on live Latin music. Eddie Palmieri is one of the finest Latin musicians of all time and a pioneer of salsa as a genre; with over 50 years’ experience as a band leader, Eddie Palmieri
(left) will perform with his 12 piece salsa orchestra alongside Latin jazz masters, The New Swing. 
           Camelot Theme Park occupies 100 acres of beautiful wooded countryside, minutes from the motorway network, at the heart of the north west. Accommodation is available at Park Hall Hotel and other local hotels, all within easy reach of the self contained resort. Camelot is readily accessible by road, rail and Manchester airport.

UK Salsa Congress - The Next Generation

With still no word from organisers Salsa-UK on the fate of this year’s UK International Salsa Congress, it looks increasingly as if we are witnessing the passing of what has been the country’s most prestigious salsa dance event to date.
           Congress always was the high point and the heart of the UK Salsa calendar. There were years where the party vibe was overwhelming, years when it was underwhelming. But for sheer heroic scale, this was the Big Daddy of the UK Salsa circuit, boldly going where no-one had ever gone before. It was without equal.
           At the same time, Britfest – the salsa congress of the North – went the way of the Norwegian Blue a while ago. The demise of both events left a yawning gap.
          
In the meantime, new contenders for the throne have arisen. An ambitious new Latin Festival - Salsa Kingdom - is set on transplanting the heart of the UK Salsa Scene in the North.  The organisers are intent on creating a fun festival with a party vibe and stonking live bands. With the early bird price of £100 running out on 5th July, this is the time to book:
www.salsakingdom.co.uk or 07977 134 927. They have the vision and the passion for Latin music to bring a whole new spicy flava to the UK Salsa scene.
           Rising from the ashes of Britfest is the Great British Salsa Experience (GBSEX). Pulling in top international dance instructors and performers including Santo Rico & Los Hermanos, Irene Miguel and more, this launches in Manchester, Friday 21st-Sunday 23rd November. To book:
www.thegreatbritishsalsaexperience.com   call: 00 44 (0) 161 881 4604. With Salsology’s Emma Moore at the helm, this is bound to be a winner.
