Tempo Latino

Posted on Jul 15, 2010

Europe’s largest salsa festival Tempo Latino takes place in the town of Vic-Fezensac in the south of France near Toulouse next week from Thursday, July 22 through Sunday, July 25th. I will be traveling to dj two evenings at the annual festival that features an international lineup with a world music flavor this year. Past Tempo Latino festivals have featured the who’s whos of Latin Music. Headlining will be Trombonist extraordinare Jimmy Bosch’s all star band featuring top sonero Herman Olivera, PR salsa diva/percussionist Choco Orta, World music sensation Ojos De Brujo, Salsa Celtica from Ireland, Barcelona salsa dura from La Sucursal, Austin’s favorite party band Grupo Fantasma, solid salsa from Colombia’s Calambuco and Italo-Andoleuse vocalist Sebastian Avispa with his tasty fusion. Joining me in the after hour sessions at Le Conga which start at 1 am will be the French all female salsa band Yemaya La Banda on the 22nd and Barcelona fusionists Zulu 9.3. I’m am excited about playing music for the European salsa scene. Para el bailador y los exigentes con sabor! For more information, go to tempolatino.org. I will be reporting on the festival in the near future…check this blog.
