RUMBA STAGE - Live Performances:

LUIS ENRIQUE- With more than 20 years of successful artistic experience, Luis Enrique, is without a doubt, the most prominent Nicaraguan singer/songwriter of all times. With 3 Latin Grammy Awards,an American Grammy, 4 Premio Lo Nuestro, 4 Latin Billboard Awards, 2 Premios Ronda as well and many more recognitions he is one of the most respected artist in the Latin entertainment industry. Better known as “El Príncipe de la Salsa”, this versatile musician is considered one of the best percussionists in Latin music. 


LA SANTA CECILIA - started their career by serenading passers by on the embellished corners of Downtown Los Angeles’ Olvera Street. They are a musical phenomenon that has won a Grammy, toured from coast to coast, collaborated with Elvis Costello, appeared on Conan, and most recently shared the stage with Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones. With captivating voice that sings about love, loss, and disappointment, the band has become the voice of a new bicultural generation in the United States, fully immersed in modern music, but still close to their Latin American influences and Mexican heritage.


CAIQUE VIDAL & BATUQUE- a unique band that brings infectious energy, riveting dance grooves, and provides an insight to Afro-Brazilian culture which is greatly needed in the music world of today.  “Batuque” (pronounced ba-TOO-kee) means to drum and the band delivers an explosive performance that integrates the sounds of percussion with a modern style in entertaining way that engages and rocks the entire audience!

Her fusion of cultures is reflected in her musical style. Her LatinPopSoul or TropicalSoul is reflected in her sound. Her voice expresses soul, funk, Latin rhythms and a pop fusion, Tamela is fluent in Spanish, English, Swedish and Italian. She is after all… a mix.
