TANGA brings a slice of Cuba to the hall
The Errington War Memorial Hall sprang to life on the weekend as dancers couldn’t help themselves from taking to the floor and even those who remained firmly rooted to their chairs bobbed, swayed and moved to the Latin rhythms of the Cuban style group, TANGA.
Grammy-winning percussionist and vocalist, “Toto” Berriel didn’t have to work too hard to get the crowd up Saturday night, not only entertaining with his music, but also teaching a word and phrase or two of Cuban lingo.
The crowd lapped it up.
Berreil has toured worldwide, singing, playing and teaching classes. His easy charm, curious mind and characteristic Cuban warmth were much in evidence on stage and were appreciated by those who attended the TANGA concert.
