Cuban Son / Salsa workshop

Son Yambu are the Carn to Cove choice at this year’s St Ives September Festival.  They  play authentic ‘Son Cubano’ or Cuban son – the essential Afro-Cuban music that originated in the streets of eastern Cuba at the turn of the last century. Son is a fusion of Spanish and African rhythms and is the root of all salsa music.

We’ve booked them to play a concert on Sunday 9th September at St Ives Guildhall, and to start the fun early, we are offering an introductory workshop to Cuban son / salsa dancing. No experience necessary!

Son/ Salsa Workshop starts at 6.00pm and lasts for 45 minutes before the Son Yambu show the same evening. A couple of the band members will lead the popular and enjoyable workshop.  Building your confidence so you’ll be able to dance the night away!
Tickets cost £5.00 but only £3.00 if you buy a show ticket at the same time. Book online here or call 01726 879500.

(NB If you’d like to join the Workshop, but have already bought your Show ticket, call CRBO with your Order number – number above )
