The Lithuanian State Symphony Orchestra + sultry salsa performers + the amabassador of Latino music Gerardo Estrada = a powerfully wild southern fiesta!
Cachita, Quando Quando, El Bodeguero, Moliendo Café, Dos Gardenias and so many other popular melodies will be played in an exceptionally bright and colourful way – as is possible only with an orchestra.
“I believe we shall electrify the evening in such a way that the audience and all of Vilnius will feel the spirit of Cuba! If you suddenly feel that you want to dance, to smile, to enjoy life and one another – that means you are getting the side-effects of a symphonic salsa. And that is just what we want”, smiles the conductor Gerardo Estrada.
