Calling all Salsa dancers! Energetic and charming, this classic Cuban ensemble from Detroit delivers the sounds found in the dance halls, hotels, and casinos of Old Havana in the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s. Their classic repertoire includes Cha-Chas, Danzón, Descargas, Mambos, and Son Montuno. Directed by widely-respected bandleader and bassist Eddie Caraballo, Descarga Ranga is known for lively performances and has thrilled audiences at the MGM Grand, on The Detroit International Jazz Festival Annual Jazz Cruise, and at The Annual Latino Heritage Dinner Dance at Ford World Headquarters. Tonight they are making their festival debut.
