The Globe Presents The Ninth Annual Cubalibre Blockparty
Enjoy a Free open-air concert and all things Cuban in the heart of downtown Coral Gables benefiting Regis House.
Celebrating Cubaâ€™s first Independence Day of 1902, this yearâ€™s concert line-up will be headlined by international singer / songwriter and multi- Grammy award winner Luis Enrique. Luis Enrique, best known as â€œEl Principe De La Salsaâ€, is one of the most recognized tropical acts of the moment and promises a night full of music which will include songs from his latest albums Ciclos, and Soy y Sere, as well as his all-time classics and the international mega-hit Yo No Se MaÃ±ana. The Globe recommends that all blockparty attendees wear their best dancing shoesâ€¦
Opening the concert will be Miamiâ€™s own masters of Cuban son and guaracha, Conjunto Progreso whose set list includes classics from Cuban greats such as Ignacio PiÃ±eiro, Miguelito Matamoros, Compay Segundo, Faustino Orasma, Ã‘ico Saquito and many more. This yearâ€™s block party will also feature hand-picked vintage Cuban music by DJ â€œEl Russoâ€. Immediately following the live outdoor concert, a special â€œDescarga After-Partyâ€ will be held inside The Globe from midnight to 2:00 a.m. hosted by DJ Nelly
In addition to the free concert, The Globeâ€™s CubaLibre BlockParty will also feature professional salsa dancers from Salsa Lovers dance academy offering free lessons, JCâ€™s Cigar Truck, Bacardi bars serving traditional Cuban cocktails, delicious street food, and many more surprises. As always, festival goers are encouraged to come decked-out in their best guayaberas and Cuban-chic attire to continue the block partyâ€™s golden age of Cuba theme.
