One of Cozumel's premier Cuban Salsa schools Salsa D’Primera will be holding its first anniversary party this weekend.  Students are excited to present their work and choreographies, and show off their school’s talent.  They’ve decided to make the anniversary a fundraising event for a charity that gathers funds for cataract eye operations for people who don’t’ have resources to pay. Their goal is to raise enough money to pay for 20 operations.  The entrance fee to the event goes towards this cause, headed by Vamos Juntos por Tu Sonrisa A.C. 

In addition to the school’s talent showcase, there are 18 other regional salsa schools that have been invited to participate and some of those will also present shows during the evening.  Top notch music will be provided by guest Cuban orchestra El Team y su Sabrosura.  And the event wouldn’t be complete without special guest musician Jorge Aquino, Cozumel’s own beloved Latin musician. 

Don’t miss out on this huge event on Saturday Aug 16, 2014 at 9pm.  It will be held at Senor Frog’s, and tickets are either 100 pesos in advance or 120 pesos at the door.

Cozumel Salseros are in for a real treat this August!  Ricky Campanelli has finally accepted our invitation to visit Cozumel.  Ricky is a Salsa artists and DJ from Montreal, and is brother of Cozumel fan Sandra Campanelli who brings new dance workshops each time she visits the island.  But don’t think he’s just here on vacation.  He’s coming to celebrate in grand style the going away party for our dear friend and world class Salsa musician Jesus Alejandro “El Niño”.  Jesus has been delighting Salseros at La Rumba for the last several months here in Cozumel and even sharing music from his newest album.  Jesus and Angelito from La Rumba play each week a variety of Latin rhythms. We’ll defiantly miss Jesus being here on the island, so all the local Salseros will defiantly come out to show their love during his going away party on August 4 at La Rumba.  Cover charge is only 50 pesos.  Location: La Rumba on 10th Ave between Salas and 1st Street South.

​Well, this year's Carnaval in Cozumel didn't impress any Salseros with the guest artists.  No Salsa concerts were included in this year's line-up.  Only Banda and Cumbia headliners were featured due to lack of "funding" from Cozumel's city government.  So Cancun stepped up to feed local Salsero's hunger for live Salsa concerts.  Marc Anthony will be giving a concert in Cancun's baseball stadium on Thursday April 17, 2014.  Tickets are already on sale, so get them before they're sold out.  I've already bought mine...wouldn't miss this one for the world! Check out Ticketmaster for concert tickets.
