La Descarga LIVE concert – “30 years Salseando Norway”

Category : Artists

This picture was taken half way in the Descarga history, some 15 years ago..

It has been 30 years since Norway’s first Salsa orchestra La Descarga was established by pianist and composer Sverre Indris Joner in the lead, and Cuban Sergio Gonzalez on vocals.

We think its the most appropriate thing in the world to celebrate this with a grand anniversary concert with this fantastic orchestra during the new Latin & Afro-Caribbean festival, Oslo Caribbean Feeling.

The concert will take place Saturday 28th of October in stunning Marmorsalen of Sentralen, in the very centre of Oslo. The ticket includes the full Oslo Caribbean Feeling Party in Sentralen, with 3 or 4 different dance-floors offering international dj´s playing salsa, kizomba, bachata, reggaeton, afrobeat, semba, son etc.

Dance shows, animation & other entertainment before and after the concert. Professional Master of Ceremony.
