About the band
Jarabe de Palo is unquestionably one of the biggest bands on the Hispano-American music scene in the last two decades.
However, Spain is currently embracing three big music genres: Latin, African and Anglo-Saxon (not forgetting its own flamenco, of course). This wealth of musical influences has helped to shape their music and given it its unique character.
Rock, funk, jazz and blues in a fusion with flamenco, Afro-Caribbean, Cuban and Brazilian music. Influences with a definite Latin feel intermeshed with other very strong musical influences from the Anglo-Saxon world. The result: pure fusion rock.
Jarabe de Palo was born in Barcelona (Spain) in the mid-1990s. The band’s first album, La Flaca (1996), opened up a new chapter in the fusion music scene of that time. In a very short space of time they became one of the most high-profile Spanish groups on the Latin-American music scene. Their unique way of understanding and mixing different styles made them one of the landmark bands in their genre. After La Flaca came Depende (1998), then De Vuelta y Vuelta(2001), Bonito (2003) and so on up to eight original albums and the same number of compilations, all published over the course of just 18 years.
15 nominations for the Latin Grammy Awards and collaborations with artists of the stature of Celia Cruz, Compay Segundo, Pavarotti, Alanis Morrissette, Chrissy Hynde (The Pretenders), endorse the quality, credibility and stature of the band.

At age 15, she represented the USA at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain in the sport of rhythmic gymnastics. After being a three time USA National Champion and competing in World Class international events, she moved on to dancing professionally in NYC & Los Angeles.
Tamara’s versatility as a dancer, gymnast, rhythmic gymnast, aerial artist and contortionist led her to having an over 20 year career as a working professional dancer. She danced on three world tours with Madonna (Drowned World, Reinvention, Confessions), and alongside other countless popular artists. Her off-Broadway NYC debut was in hit aerial shows “De La Guarda”, and later became part of the original cast of “Fuerzabruta”.
Mrs. Levinson is currently working as a choreographer & movement therapist. Tamara has been teaching all styles of movement for over 20 years and continues to consistently create works of her own in all mediums of movement art.
Workshops breakdown:
“Your body is your subconscious mind.” – Dr. Candace Pert.
Your body is your only true home. The only thing you can’t escape or hide from, therefore the greatest tool you own that to be able to search other dimensions of self and release blocks the body stores. Movement therapy is a very personal experience of self-exploration guided by Tamara Levinson within a safe space of fellow BEYOUtiful warriors all uniting to connect on a deeper level.
Tamara will guide you through various exercises where you will be challenged to creatively use your imagination to explore your inner being. The movement is the tool, the breathe is the map, the voice is the reminder. Be prepared to move free and explore all aspects of self unapologetically.
This workshop is ALL LEVELS.

5th Annual SxSe 2012 South Florida Tweetup Weekend in Key Largo 9/28-30/12

USE THIS LINK TO BOOK YOUR DISCOUNT ROOMS! 

SxSe is South Florida’s longest continuing old skool tweetup tradition. Join us for a weekend of fun in Key Largo! The ultimate unconference. Rooms will be available at the Key Largo Hilton and the official tweetup will take place at the Pilot House nearby.

On Friday, September 28 we’ll gather for happy hour, followed by a leisurely day and a tweetup on Saturday. Sunday will be the usual check-out routine as we stop to have a long, relaxing lunch and a sunset cocktail on the way back home.

Official SxSe headquarters will be at the Hilton Key Largo. Our beachfront rooms are $129/night double occupancy. The property features an activities concession if you choose to go kayaking, windsurfing, etc; but as always lounging by the pool or beach and doing nothing is highly encouraged.

The official SxSe tweetup will take place at the Pilot House just 2 miles away on the evening of Saturday, September 29. Visit Facebook for the official event invite.

We’ll post details on room discount codes and additional logistical information on this website. Check out the links on the sidebar. @sxse is your best source for last-minute details, but you may also visit our Facebook Community Page. The hashtag is #sxse.

Please note that you are not obligated to stay at the Hilton or to spend the night in the Florida Keys if you want to drive home after the tweetup, although we don’t recommend that choice! But if you want to stay elsewhere, that’s fine. It’s just more fun when everyone is in the same place.

It all started when a group of friends on Twitter got together to party in Southeast Florida! Today, SxSe is South Florida’s longest continuing old skool tweetup tradition and the ultimate unconference! This year’s fifth annual sub-tropical tweetup takes place in Key Largo, September 28-30, following Social Media Week. Feel the Twitter love!

The event name SxSe (South by South East, rhymes with sexy) is simply a spoof; had we been located in Bum F*ck Egypt, we might’ve called the event BFE. SxSe has nothing to do with SXSW whatsoever — it’s just a big-ass party taking place in the nation’s dicktip. There are no panels, powerpoint or keynote addresses; however, there is plenty of great discussion, bonding and friendship. If there’s anything professional about SxSe, it’s a very high standard of olympic-quality mojito drinking.
