LIVE SALSA BAND 'DEL BARRIO'
Del Barrio prides itself as being one of Melbourne's premier Latin Band. Since the mid 1990's they have entertained audiences with their saucy tunes. It's repertoire is strongly influenced by the New York Latin bands of the 1970s. Ray Barreto, Ruben Blades, Celia Cruz, El Gran Combo, and Tito Puente are just some of the artists that inspire their music. Gualberto Casas, lead singer and founder of the band, is a gifted performer who is able to transport us to that era of classic and sophisticated salsa.

What is BACHATA?
Originating from the Dominican Republic where the music was also born today Bachata is danced in the Caribbean and all over the world to faster music, adding more footwork, simple turns and rhythmic free style moves and with alternate between close (romantic) and open position (more playful adding footwork, simple turns, rhythmic torso etc.) The most direct fusion influence on the modern/moderna dance, comes from the adoption of salsa turn patterns; these, together with dips became the core of the dance. Bachata Sensual is a mix between dance and theatre with strict follow and lead principles. The dance is an interpretation of the music with mostly circular movements and body waves, except when the music has stronger beats, when the dance uses isolations and dips.
Australian Bachata Champion Romina Anaquin has crafted a style of original Dominican and Modern Bachata, combining the movement, form and technique specific to the rhythm and melody of the music.
