Remembering Xavier Cugat at the Villa de Nerja

Remembering Xavier Cugat at the Villa de Nerja

to Unsustainable Big Band pays tribute, next Friday, February 14 at the Villa de Nerja Cultural Center, to the figure of Xavier Cugat, pioneer in the emergence of Latin rhythms in the United States.

Absolute protagonist of the golden times -years 30 and 40- of the great orchestras and radio in Hollywood, New York and Las Vegas, the Catalan director made genres such as the mambo, the bolero or the cha-cha-chá fashionable, which by merging them with swing and jazz, a new type of dance music originated. His staging, full of congas and maracas, dressed in frills, colorful fruits and tropical rhythms caused a sensation in ?The Big Apple?, where he was known as ?the king of the rumba?.

The show will begin at 8 pm and the price of admission is 15 euros, which can be purchased at the ticket office of the Villa de Nerja Cultural Center, in Granada 45, from two hours before the performance.
