The Música en la Plaza music series has become so popular at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido, that they have expanded it to the last Friday of every month starting this month.
From Cumbia and Huapango, to Salsa and Norteña, these rhythms will move you to get up and dance under the stars.
Kicking off the new, expanded music series is Kimba Light on Friday, January 25 starting at 7 p.m. in the Lyric Court.
The three-year-old band based out of San Diego brings its unique sound of salsa, timba, merenge, bachata, reggaeton, cumbia, and chachacha with a funky twist.
The band is made up of five members: Yorly Quintero (piano and vocals) from Cienfuego, Cuba; Daniel Feldman (conga/percussion); Rene Campos (trombone) from Havana, Cuba; and native Californians Michael Atesalp (drums) and Fernando Garcia (bass and vocals).
