This is one concert you won’t want to miss! Australia’s only Afro-Cuban Orchestra Palacio de la Rumba with 4 dancers from Sydney’s first Mambo Academy Dance Mambo directed by Adrian Medina in Club York’s Red Room.

Palacio de la Rumba continues to exceed expectations with diverse, dynamic performances that keep the Latin big band tradition alive. Built on the Afro-Caribbean past, Latin Jazz is a major force shaping contemporary Australian musical culture.

Over the past few years Spare Parts Productions have helped make Sydney a Latin Jazz stronghold by presenting groups who specialise in spontaneous, improvisatory interplay that is the beating heart of every Latin Jazz performance.

On Friday July 16th Palacio de la Rumba seek to mine the imaginative Afro-Cuban motherlode with music by Elio Villafranca, Gai Bryant, George Russell, Rebeca Mauleón, Chano Pozo and Wayne Wallace, and a parade of stellar guests including John Hoffman, James Greening, Giorgio Rojas, Juan Carlos Allende, Daniel Pliner and the Dance Mambo.

This is a night of celebration for the universal power of rhythm and the beauty of Afro-Caribbean culture. Hit the dance floor with us and move your body to rollicking interpretations of bomba, mambo, cha cha chá, traditional Afro-Cuban rhythms and classic Cuban music styles.

Tickets. Adults $35, Concession $30, Under 18's $25

Under 18's will need to be accompanied by an adult. Wrist bands will be supplied to distinguish under 18's so that they will not be served alcohol.
