Upcoming Latin in the Park on the theme of Fania Records

On Friday 11 August, Latin in the Park is back at the Zuiderpark Theatre! After an amazing previous edition with over 800 dancing visitors, the world tour in Latin music continues to the New York of the 1970s. This edition will also feature master percussionist Gerardo Rosales together with his 12-piece La Vintage Orchestra.
