Musically, the night began in the mountains of western Bolivia and ended in the streets of Mumbai, India. In between, the lucky guests had an entertainment tour throughout Latin America, Europe and far-flung spots along the Caribbean.
Upon arrival guests were serenaded by the incredible MARIO and JOSE ORETEA, flamenco guitar virtuosos playing traditionals from their Bolivian homeland as well as from their mentors from France, the Gypsy Kings. The Latin jazz trio LaTiDo then took over during the catered dinner and played a wonderful set that hinted of musical journeys to come.
Bossa nova music created a sexy segue into the dance portion of the evening, which featured the RUEDA con RITMO dance group performing the "wheel" style of Cuban street dance to the music of Los Van Van. Then a solo dance performance by YISMARI to Camila Cabello's current mega-hit "Havana" was a show-stopper. Increasing the energy, the CANDELA salsa orchestra immediately lit into their fiery set and guests quickly jammed the dance floor, and stayed there. Guests only thought they were danced-out after Candela's last song... but once led inside, JEFFREY IQBAL hit them with big, India/Bollywood-style pop hits, and more dancing and fun were unavoidable.
In all, the exquisite setting and event were truly graced by an entire evening of fantastic live music and dance performances from around the world.
