Music Director Martin Taylor (Mucho Mambo) performs with a stellar line-up of top Australian musicians performing Latin boogaloo, salsa, and mambo - the Latin sounds of the 60s and 70s. Joining them on stage are award-winning dancers in a colourful showcase, celebrating the street styles of Latin New York in the Fania era.
