To help celebrate Northrop's new season and Mexico 2010, Charanga Tropical returns after being the highlight of the 2010 Summer at Northrop Music Series. The popular Charanga Tropical is a nine-piece ensemble featuring three violins, flute, and a sizzling Latin rhythm section. Star Tribune raves about the group's "distinctive Caribbean sound" while City Pages calls the group "a musical delight and a visual spectacle."
With an eye towards Mexico, Charanga Tropical blends the old with the new to create a sound that is classic yet modern. Music that is rich in harmony and melody, fantastic for listening and superb for dancing, this outdoor dance party will feature some best salsa dancers from the Twin Cities.
Dancers of all ages are welcome! Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
Presented as part of Mexico 2010 Celebration: Bicentennial of the Independence of Mexico and the Centennial of the Mexican Revolution in collaboration with the Consulate of Mexico in Saint Paul, MN.
