THE BIG ONE : 3 rooms, 8 DJs, 125 free mix CDs, 1 Dominican bachata class......the final blowout for a great Calle Ocho year! 9pm: Dominican bachata class (intermediates level) with Felipe Reyes (Salsa Cabana) & Amanda Hawley (Todo Latino) Dominican bachata is the real deal and the pure roots bachata...forget all that r'n'b and bachatango stuff. We have two of the finest teachers of this style with us tonight for a pre-clubnight intermediates class.....Felipe Reyes from Manchester and Amanda Hawley from Nottingham. With Dominican bachata making a big comeback this last year, an essential class for all those who want to get it right on the dancefloor........no need to pre-book, just turn up just before 9pm. 10pm : Doors and Salsa Room open DJs Lubi (Fania Records CD compiler & top UK international congress DJ), Fabio Bahia (spinning salsa since 1995 UK wide), Dr Salsa (Scottish Salsa Congress) and special guest DJ Montunno (Newcastle Salsa Congress) play the best salsa from South America, the Caribbean and Hispanic USA....Puerto Rico, Colombia, Cuba, Venezuela, Nueva York, Miami...salsa past and present plus a touch of bugalu, cha cha cha, mambo, son and of course, bachata! 11pm : Kizomba & Tropical Room opens Our resident PALOP DJ Dico (Leeds) will be playing the latest kizomba, semba, kuduru, funana, zouk etc in our hot and always packed conservatory room.....you'll forget it's the middle of winter outside! Due to it being so close to Christmas, we can't fly Anna in from Barcelona as flights do not coincide with our date (no flights Friday and Saturday to Leeds) and bringing her to airports outside our region is just to costly in the Chrismas period. She'll be back in February. 11.30pm : Urban Latin room opens Our resident DJs Silvao (Mistura Latina), MrB (100% Latino) and Parce (Rumba Picante) dropping big and banging Latin bass music.....reggaeton, dembow, latin hiphop, latin r'n'b mashups, merengue electronico, baile funk! The tiny but packed room with the monster sound system made to make your bones shake...... CALLE OCHO CHRISTMAS PARTY MIX CD GIVEAWAY : only 125 available for the dance class and the early bird clubnight arrivals....once they've gone, that's it. If you have all the others, get down early to maintain the full set.......
