Pasión de Buena Vista | Tyne Theatre

Cuba’s award-winning international smash hit music & dance show Pasión de Buena Vista will return to theatres across the UK in February 2022.

All the way from Havana, Pasión de Buena Vista’s celebrated dance troupe ‘El Grupo de Bailar’ will combine once again with ‘The Buena Vista Band’ – a stunning twelve-piece ensemble of highly skilled Cuban musicians and singers renowned throughout Cuba and the Latin Music community – to present their unique and exhilarating stage show, transporting audiences on a journey through the streets of the Cuba via an array of the island’s most iconic dances, including the irresistible Salsa, Mambo, Cha-cha-cha, Danzón and Bolero.

Merging Cuba’s old traditions with the island’s new musical influences, the show promises to quickly cast a spell on the audience. Evoking the atmosphere of a breezy Havana club, it’s almost more like a vacation to Cuba than just a concert, which perhaps explains why Pasión de Buena Vista has performed to more than 800,000 people at over 800 shows across 35 different European countries.

This feel-good show’s high production value adds further to the vibe, including stunning backdrops and over 150 suitably flamboyant tailor-made outfits befitting of the show’s celebration of Cuba’s cultural heritage and invigorating, life-affirming spirit.   

The 14-date tour begins on 3rd February 2022 and ends on 16th February, and includes a date at London’s Sadler’s Well on 13th February.

Fronting the show is Musical Director and lead vocalist Pelayo Oxamendi. A music graduate of the University of Havana, Pelayo worked with the legends Compay Segundo, Ibrahim Ferrer, Omara Portuondo, Ruben Gonzalez and Pio Leyva from the iconic Buena Vista Social Club.

Pip Leyva referred to Pelayo as one of the best singers in Cuba, and one of his equal successors. Pelayo has since worked with many hugely successful international artists on recordings in Cuba.

Looking ahead to Pasión De Buena Vista’s UK tours, Pelayo said, “We are very happy to finally come back to the UK to celebrate the Cuban music and enjoyment of life with the amazing UK audiences! We are looking forward to seeing you all in 2022!”
