Cindy McCain, Nashville Latin Dancing Examiner at Examiner.com and guest writer at HispanicNashville.com, has an interview with Kings of Salsa artist director and choreographer Roclan Gonzalez Chavez here. The non-interview, promo material version is here:
Choreographed by Roclan Gonzalez Chavez, this stunning new show pays homage to the great Cuban performers and the dance styles from this intoxicating island, with a cool contemporary modern twist showing young Cuba today.
Regarded as one of the best young choreographers in Cuba, Gonzalez Chavez has created this show to feature the unique talents of some of the island’s best dancers, picked from the cream of Cuba’s top dance companies. The electrifying mix of performers and choreographic styles makes this a show not to be missed.
Featuring the very best of Havana’s cool street salsa and hip hop scene, Kings of Salsa seamlessly mixes traditional Afro-Caribbean moves, world class contemporary dance and the Cuban classics: Mambo, Rumba, and Cha Cha Cha. Backed by the spectacular 9-piece band Cuba Ashire, who unleash Latin rhythms and stratospheric brass arrangements, Kings of Salsa showcases a slice of cool contemporary Cuba never seen before on stage.
