Primera Diversión live at Goldbekhaus!
Our first live performance since the covid 19 – lockdown, after one and a half year of silence! There were only 50 people admitted, and it was sold out. The audience was obliged to sit on their chairs and dancing was forbidden, which is not easy to the exciting latin rhythms of the band. So we helped them and played a little bit more jazzy and complex repertoire ;-). People were happy to hear us again after such a long time!
Salsa & Latin Jazz Band PRIMERA DIVERSIÓN´s17 musicians from Hamburg have played a ballad from Francisco Céspedes from their homes, with their cameras, mobile phones and laptops. Pianist and arranger Oliver together with guitarist Norbert then did the video cut and the audio mix: “Vida Loca” – the crazy life!
