Let’s Go Salsa@Jessie! La Mixta Criolla // SF

Let’s Go Salsa@Jessie! La Mixta Criolla // SF

Let’s Go Salsa@Jessie!, the open-air salsa dance party in Jessie Square (near the Contemporary Jewish Museum), takes place on the third Thursday from May to August from 6:00pm – 7:30pm with salsa dance lessons at the beginning of every program.

The Bay Area doesn’t boast a large Puerto Rican population but what the community lacks in numbers it makes up for with fervent spirit. And no group has done more to bring the island’s verdant culture to Bay Area stages in recent years than La Mixta Criolla.

Featuring Camilo Landau on the four-string cuatro, bassist Ayla Dávila, Sandra García Rivera on güícharo (gourd scraper), and percussionists Javier Navarrette (timbal), Roman Ito Carrillo (bongó, barril and pandero), and Héctor Lugo (congas, barril and pandero) and all five on vocals, the band delves into an irresistible array of rhythmic traditions, including bomba, guaracha, jíbara, merengue, son, rumba, cumbia and beyond.
