Notice of Cancellation of
ISLA DE SALSA 2022

We would like to thank everyone who was waiting for our festival "ISLA DE SALSA 2022".
We regret to announce the cancellation of the festival of this summer. After studying the possibility of holding this festival in compliance with the anti-Covid-19 prevention protocol and security measures, we have decided that it is not possible to hold it this summer. We know that this third cancellation is sad news to all who were looking forward to participating and for us at Tiempo who were dreaming about meeting you againon Nokonoshima beach. We really appreciate your understanding.

We are planning an alternative event between the 23rd and 25th of September since the organizer NPO TIEMPO Iberoamericano celebrates this year its 25th anniversary since its founding. We hope to announce the details of the event as soon as posible.

Regarding "Vívela! Salsa Tour 2022", we are now considering the possibility of holding the tour inviting a foreign orchestra and we will announce it at the end of the Golden Week in May.

Our festival

What's ISLA?

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.
