We are celebrating the 20th anniversary of SalsaNor this year, and we want to celebrate it with all of you during the Rueda Congress!Our birthday gift to share with you, is a live salsa concert with one of the most prestigious, cuban salsa bands in Europe at the moment:

Rene Alvarez y su Cuban combination!

They play melodic salsa sprinkled with a wide range of other Cuban rhythms, like danzón, son, changui and songo, giving you really juicy timba with elements of funk and RnB.

The orchestra was founded in London in 2009 by Cuban Rene Alvarez Portuondo, who plays trombone, piano, sings and composes. He has his professional music education from the Music Conservatory of Santiago de Cuba. Before Alvarez moved from Cuba to the UK he was a vocalist in the top orchestra Sur Caribe. During the last 10 years, the orchestra has received a large fan base across Europe, and has received great reviews for their two albums.

The concert is of course included in the Rueda Congress Pass!

Bergen is the home city of world famous composer of classical music, Edvard Grieg. He was born here 15th of June 1843. His most famous compositions are Piano Concerto in a minor, Incidental music for Ibsen’s drama “Peer Gynt” (Morning Mood, In the Hall of the Mountain King, Solveig’s Song a.o.), Lyric Pieces for piano and the Holberg Suite.

Another famous musician from Bergen, was the Norwegian virtuoso violinist and composer Ole Bull (1810-1880). According to Robert Schumann, he was on a level with Niccolò Paganini for the speed and clarity of his playing.

We even have a very creative Norwegian musician, Sverre Indris Joner, that has arranged several pieces of classical music, from Edvard Grieg and also composers like Bach, Mozart, Beethoven etc,  into Cuban rhythms for classical orquestas.

The Classic White Gala Party is included in the SalsaNor Rueda Congress pass and the Rueda Congress Party Pass.
