Maaambo! by La Cubana and the Barcelona Symphony Band, is back

Maaambo! is one of L’Auditori de Barcelona’s liveliest ‎family shows. With stage direction by La Cubana and featuring the Barcelona ‎Symphony Band, the show takes us to Latin America to discover its incomparable ‎range of rhythm and music.‎

The Barcelona Symphony Band musicians are your guides on this exciting tour, which will ‎transport passengers in Hall 1, Pau Casals from the tango to the son, ‎taking in the mambo, danzón and joropo. The tour visits six countries, Cuba, Puerto ‎Rico, Argentina, Mexico, Brazil and Venezuela where audiences will enjoy the style ‎of traditional popular tunes, learn about some of the key figures in Latin-American music and ‎see some of their best known dances.‎

The repertoire will include such iconic pieces as Mambo No. 8, La ‎Conga del Fuego Nuevo, La Bamba, Libertango, El ‎Malambo and Tico Tico. Finally, our journey takes us back ‎across the Atlantic to Catalonia, where the musicians will bring us the charming ‎‎habanera La bella Lola.‎

The stage direction of Maaambo! is by La Cubana. It is their first concert aimed at school and ‎family audiences. All the costumes, choreography, audiovisuals and other features have ‎been designed to make the event a real Latin fiesta.‎

Juan Miguel Romero will be responsible for musical ‎direction replacing Henrie Adams, who has had to step down for health reasons. ‎We all wish him a speedy recovery.‎
