SAN FRANCISCO RUEDA FESTIVAL - FEBRUARY 15, 2014

The San Francisco Rueda Festival draws dancers from all over the world to teach classes, participate in dance competitions, take classes and to attend dance concerts with world class salsa and timba bands.  This year the headliner was Mayito Rivera backed by Timbalive from Miami.

TRIBUTE TO SAUL LANDAU - MARCH 1, 2014

Saul Landau was an internationally known scholar, author, commentator, and filmmaker who worked for forty years on social, political, and human rights issues. Landau produced over forty films and some of his work included films and books about Cuba.  Mr. Landau passed away on September 9, 2013 and the Bay Area community had a tribute to him which included a performance by Mayito Rivera backed by Pellejo Seco.  7 Potencias, folkloric dance and drumming group was the opening act.
