Friday, 1th of October 2021 at Birdland Hamburg

We rocked the legendary jazz club of Hamburg! At a venue where listeners usually just tap their feet we got the crowd on the dance floor. It was a so called “2G”-event, the first of its kind at this location, all participants including the whole band had to be vaccinated, and the people were happy to be able to move freely to the exciting rhythms of PRIMERA DIVERSIÓN!

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!

1. July 2017 - Methfesselfest

Review

This is how Georg P., the organizer of the Methfesselfest, wrote to us. PRIMERA DIVERSIÓN did not need telling twice, and so the band, as well as the visitors of the festival, were looking forward to the new performance this year. The dance school „EL CHÈVERE“ came to our performance and offered exciting choreographies in line dancing and Rueda style to the amazed public.

8. April 2017 - La Bodega Surimex, Hamburg

After our trip to rural Schleswig-Holstein we play in Hamburg again: Already well-known in the Latino scene, La Bodega SURIMEX for most people of Hamburg still is an inside tip and a really original location:  The club is situated in the casemates under the subway line of subway station Hamburger Straße! It is run by Señor Federico Breitung who supplies the people of the Hanseatic city in his market and bistro SURIMEX on Mundsburger Damm with excellent groceries imported from Latin America.

18. February 2017 - LandArt Havetoftloit (Schleswig- Holstein)

Salsa & Latin Jazz Bigband PRIMERA DIVERSIÓN has the honour of performing in the North of Schleswig-Holstein! More or less in the middle between Schleswig and Flensburg you can find the Land-Art, a super-cozy country inn and cultural events center in the tiny village of Havetoftloit. For some people still an inside tip, it’s the meeting point for the scene in Schleswig-Holstein, and in the particular case of a Latino event like the Salsa & Latin Jazz Bigband PRIMERA DIVERSIÓN dancers of the vibrant salsa scene from Flensburg, Kiel and Hamburg come together here.
For the people of Hamburg a visit of the LandArt can be combined easily with a trip to the North Sea, the Baltic Sea or the river Schlei. And in the evening the Salsa & Latin Jazz Bigband PRIMERA DIVERSIÓN stands ready for a lively dancing.
