Dust off those dancing shoes, bring your smile and get ready to party! Latin Sounds at the Pavilion is the event that will kick off the summer season in Parkes. Emerge yourself in the new sounds and rhythms of Latin-America, whilst chilling out in a magical sunset at Cooke Park Pavilion.
For the first instalment, Latin Sounds will kick off with the soothing sounds of Brazil. Sit back and be transported to Rio with the Carioca Project featuring Brazilian percussionist and vocalist Gustavo Cantor, saxophonist Gai Bryant, pianist/vibes Ed Goyer and bassist Harry Birch.
In between, DJ Frank Madrid will entertain with a mix of the most popular Latin beats from around the world. The main dish is the nine piece band and solo dancer Caribé, a melding of musicians from Sydney’s Cuban, jazz and Latin communities, integrating traditional Cuban dance and music with a modern jazz aesthetic in an immersive performance experience.
This is a free community event with live entertainment for the whole family with food vendors such as Good Folk Food, Packed Cones and Taste of Greece onsite for the evening. Dancers of all abilities are encouraged to attend this interactive performance.
