Carnaval Week and Calle 8 was once again awesome. We start off the festivities in South Beach with Billy Van who flew in from Puerto Rico to delight us with his unique style of singing and dancing plena with the backup of some of the members of Miami's own "Plena Punto Sabroso.The music continued the following day at Carnaval on the Mile celebrating its 10th anniversary with a terrific line up of jazz artist from New Orleans,Puerto Rico,Cuba and New York. Arturo Sandoval, Ed Calle ,Negroni's Trio, Mingus Big Band,and Grammy nominated Tony Perez were some the performers. The 3 day jazz festival was headlined with additional artist.It has now become a tradition that everyone enjoys.
Calle 8 was spectacular! It was the 30th anniversary and attracted more than a million people. The city of Miami and the Kiwanis are able to attract visitors from all over the world and pull off an event that blends so many cultures together in one day. Once again the music, food and attractions lived up to our expectations.
