One of the most fun parts of my study abroad experience in Lima, Peru was the dancing. Every night of the week, people were out dancing - at salsa clubs, at discotecas, in parks. Although many of the younger audiences would dance to American pop music, the best dancing nights were always in salsa clubs with live music. The music in these clubs was infecteous - when you heard it, you couldn't help but start to sway the hips, moving the torso back and forth with the beat. Soon, even the most reluctant of dancers would be out of the floor stepping the night away in dance.
I thought that I had left that type of music and dance in Peru, but I'm excited to say that for one night, it's coming here to Madison, when Sierra Maestra plays for a dance party in the Great Hall on March 23rd at 8pm.
I dare you to try. Here's a live performance of Sierra Maestra at launch of their 2010 CD "Sonando Ya."
