ISLA DE SALSA will be back this summer after 4 years!
The legendary orquesta known as the "Cuba’s musical bullet train"
Juan Formell y LOS VAN VAN
Returning to Japan with a total of 16 members!
This summer, VAN VAN whirlwind is coming again!
ISLA DE SALSA, which has been refraining from holding events since 2020 to prevent COVID-19 infection, will return to Nokonoshima this year!
The legend of the Caribbean, LOS VAN VAN, will wow crowds at the 24th ISLA DE SALSA with exciting and infectious rhythms. The 16-member LOS VAN VAN will come back to Japan with a sharpened, more contemporary edge under the musical direction of master drummer Samuel Formell, heir to the Van Van dynasty after a thirteen-year absence.
Full lineup, ticket and more details will be announced soon.
This festival started the same year NPO Tiempo Iberoamericano was established in 1997. As a major musical event on the local calendar, it is not exclusively focused on being a salsa event, but instead extends the original meaning of the word salsa, or sauce. In this case, it is a rich sauce, that through a mutual blending of understanding rises above the diverse cultures and characteristics or ‘ﬂavors’ of its individual elements, creating the possibility of a new whole when brought together. This is the cross-cultural concept of this festival. In today's world of rapid digitalization, it is a goal of Isla de Salsa to create an experience where people can feel the warmth of one another. In a general sense however, it is the insistence on the basic human and personal level of interaction that enables Tiempo to create a friendly environment for cultural exchange that extends beyond the common divisions of race, gender, age and nationality.
Over the past 23 years, many renowned international and local budding artists have participated in this festival, joined by people from near and far. The festival attracted 4,700 people in 2009. The center has brought wonderful artists to perform not only in Kyushu and in other parts of Japan, but also overseas on extended tours through our network. It has managed, for instance, the tour of Los Van Van at the Sydney Opera House and produced the Asian Paciﬁc Tour of El Gran Combo for their 50th anniversary tour. This kind of cultural exchange, regardless of diﬀer- ences in languages, nationalities and cultures, reﬂects the heart of Tiempo Iberamericano. At the 2009 Isla de Salsa, we were honored to welcome multi-grammy winner Juan Luis Guerra as his debut in Asia.
