On Saturday, November 5th, feel the beat and experience a little of a Latino themed cultural celebration at Salsa Saturday at uShaka Marine World’s Wahooz on the promenade. This first ever salsa festival event will showcase mucho music, dance, food and family fun.
Durban’s own fun- loving, dance-infusing, Musical Act Manteca, a vibrant High energy 8 piece afro-Caribbean band will headline the Afternoons Musical Feast at uShaka. The band features a culturally diverse array of musicians with a passion for the intense rhythmically charged art form of Afro Caribbean music, a fusion of European classical and African musical traditions and has been burning the authentic Salsa music flame for over 8 years.
Also on the line-up is Heather Groove, this mighty and versatile multifaceted Pop, Jazz and Party band was formed by a few formidable and experienced musicians and residents of Heather Grove in Redhill, which inspired their name. Under the leadership of David Langley on Keys and the powerful vocals of Kerry Langley, the rhythmic prodigy Riley Giandhari on Drums and the mentor, Mark Momple, on Bass, the band has been carving a name for themselves on the local scene. The band will be joined by friends, Tom Hare and Daniel Sheldon on Trumpet and Sax, especially for this upcoming event.
