All the way from Havana, Cuba’s award-winning international hit music & dance show Pasión de Buena Vista, featuring a stunning seventeen 17-piece ensemble of incredibly talented Cuban musicians, singers and dancers.
The highly skilled 12-piece ensemble ‘The Buena Vista Band’ renowned throughout Cuba and the Latin music community, combine with celebrated Cuban dance troupe ‘El Grupo de Bailar’ to present this unique and exhilarating stage show, transporting audiences on a journey through the streets and night clubs of Havana, an era of real Cuban musical life via an array of the island’s most iconic dances, including the irresistible Salsa, Mambo, Cha-cha-cha, Danzón and Bolero.
Merging Cuba’s old traditions with the island’s new musical influences, the show moves and blends between evoking the atmosphere of a sultry Havana Jazz club; or the energy, exuberance and heat of a top Havana Cabaret show or the traditional street festival party , all reflecting the rich culture of Cuba…it’s almost more like a vacation to the island than just a concert, which perhaps explains why Pasión de Buena Vista has performed to more than 800,000 people at over 800 shows across 35 different European countries alone.
Fronting the show is Musical Director and lead vocalist Pelayo Oxamendi. A music graduate of the University of Havana, Pelayo worked with the legends Compay Segundo, Ibrahim Ferrer, Omara Portuondo, Ruben Gonzalez and Pio Leyva from the iconic Buena Vista Social Club.
The show’s high production value adds further to the vibe, including stunning backdrops and over 150 suitably flamboyant tailor-made outfits befitting of the show’s celebration of Cuba’s cultural heritage and invigorating, life-affirming spirit.
The vibrant music and natural rhythm of Cuban people, exquisite costumes and elaborate choreography are sure to keep you entertained all nigh
