Los Primos!

Los Primos is pleased to announce two special guests to be featured at the 13th annual Dance for All Ages on February 23 - Augusto Enriquez and Oliver Valdés. During their stay, these musicians will join headlining band-Latin Groove as well as give performances, workshops, and share musical culture with local students and professional musicians.

This mid-winter event is an opportunity for young and old to dance the night away Cuban style. Dance lessons provided by Halifax Salseros. Latin Groove is the Latin dance community’s favorite band to dance to. At the Dance for All Ages, a fifteen piece-Latin Groove will hit the stage at 9:30 p.m and play two sets of hot salsa music that’s sure to bring the temperature of our icy city to the boiling point.

Fifteen musicians – Cuban and Canadian – will take to the stage to delight in this hot mix of Latin music and Cuban salsa that will delight the growing fans of salsa dancing in the region.

Leading the way will be Augusto Enriquez, one of Cuba's best-known singers and international star tenor. Augusto has performed all over the world, sharing the stage many times with his good friend Luciano Pavarotti.

Latin Groove is proud to have among our Cuban performers, Oliver Valdés. He was part of the very first exchange of Cuban music students the Los Primos project brought to Nova Scotia, Los Primos 1998, and then returned with his father in Los Primos 2000. He now plays all over the world with the World famous Cuban singer songwriter, Silvio Rodriguez.

Watch for other performances in Halifax during the month, showcasing Oliver Valdés. He will be playing two Sundays this month-Feb 17 and 24 at Stayner’s Wharf. Come on out and enjoy one of Cuba’s most respected drummers perform Latin Jazz. Here you can hear Oliver on drums with his own jazz composition.

They can be purchased in advance or at the door.
