I’m Performing Salsa TODAY with OTRA at Congo Square New World Rhythms Fest (4pm) at Armstrong Park!!!

Standard

Hey FabuFriends!!!

I’ll BE dancing Salsa today with Theodore George for OTRA at Congo Rhythms Fest (FREE) in Armstrong Park. Otra is doing a mixed set with Africa Brass from 4-5:45 pm. We are on for the first 3 songs…then Africa Brass performs (with dancers as well)…then everyone will BE together at the end.

OTRA (Afro-Cuban Jazz & Grooves) & Africa Brass are on right before Pedrito Martinez Group too!! If you missed them at Jazz Fest last year (or last night at Tipitina’s), here’s your special chance to check out some phenomenal performances (especially PMG before they head back to NYC)!!
