Mambo Dinamico Latin Dance Showcase with Orquesta GarDel

Mambo Dinamico Latin Dance Showcase with Orquesta GarDel

Why watch dance shows on TV when you can come experience the real thing? Join us for Mambo Dinamico's Fourth Annual Showcase, featuring breathtaking performances from top talent both local to the Triangle and abroad.

But the evening isn't just about watching performances because salsa is social and participatory. So, we've got the Triangle's hottest salsa band, Orquesta GarDel, now a Haw River Ballroom regular, slated to bring you two sets of hip-swaying Afro-Cuban grooves.

About Mambo Dinamico:
Mambo Dinamico was founded in 2002 with the purpose of spreading the love for latin dance and music in North Carolina. They train their students to perform original choreographies for audiences around the world.

About Orquesta GarDel:
Thoroughly multinational but uniquely North Carolinian, Orquesta GarDel thrills audiences with a high-energy Latin dance music experience. The monstrous thirteen-member lineup replicates the format of a classic Nuyorican salsa dura ensemble – a full deck of horn players, percussionists, and coro singers. Rooted in its own arrangements of great salsa, cumbia, and merengue songs, GarDel is not merely a cover band: its debut EP, Lo Que Tú Querías, consists entirely of original compositions, mixing timeless salsa with flavors of edgy jazz and funky Cuban timba. Founded in 2006 by David GARcia, a professor of ethnomusicology at UNC Chapel Hill, and singer Nelson DELgado, Orquesta GarDel’s members straddle multiple generations, combining Latino music veterans with African- and Anglo-American jazzers.
