Presenting a positive alternative to the wave of intolerance and hate we are experiencing today; this original, multi-media and newly staged production features special musical arrangements and world premieres that encapsulate the unity people can achieve when they find something in common. A cast of over 40 performers reflects this worldwide diversity with featured artists and groups such as Danza Azteca Aquetzalli, Intuitive African Dance and Drum Culture, Solero Flamenco, Strictly Street Salsa Dancers, Jorge Orta y su Tumbaká, Reinaldo Costa, Manolo Mairena, Raúl Orlando Edwards, Brittany Hunter (Urban Souls), Alfonso Alarcón Sandoval, Ricardo Magas Rojas and Special Guest Chorographer Alexis Zanety. Coinciding with this 9th Anniversary is the commemoration of Four centuries since Africans arrived in the United States through the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. Salsa y Salud dedicates this show to their fighting spirit and to the many contributions they have made – Salsa is one of them!
