Salsaria is proud to present ¡La Fantasía de Musica!, a live concert series, bringing for the first time the Grammy nominated Legendary band, the New Swing Sextet to Ottawa on Saturday, October 22, 2016, to play at the immaculate brand new theatre, La Nouvelle Scene, at 333 King Edward Avenue!!
¡La Fantasía de Musica!, is an annual live concert series, with a focus on social dancing to live band and to featured salsa vinyl DJs. Each year, we will invite a Latin Band to be part of Fantasia. This is not another congress, festival or convention. This is a one night only, music and dance, for the seriously salsa addicts. Our objective is to bring back live music and dancing.
In addition, we are overly excited to announce the signing of the ultra, super salsa vinyl DJ Efrain “Frankie” Flores from Cleveland, Ohio, to be part of the inaugural ¡La Fantasía de Musica! How ultra-super? This cat eats, sleeps, burps salsa! A look at him, will have the clave rhythm down your spine. Dancing to his music is a dangerous never ending orgasmic journey! He will make your dancing soul extremely happy!
