This year the proceeds from the LATIN MUSIC FEST will be dedicated to sending food and medical supplies to our friends in Madison’s sister city of Camaguey, Cuba. Over the years we have established long term relationships with artists, especially musicians, in Camaguey and they need our help now.
We will also honor the MEMORY of musician, band leader and composer Adalberto Alvarez, a native of Camaguey, who passed away recently from Covid. Additionally, we will recognize our friend and colleague Jose Madera as LATIN MUSICIAN OF THE YEAR. Jose has been a very important part of the Latin music scene in Madison for over 20 years, as a member of MADISALSA, GRUPO CANDELA, CHARANGA AGOZA and other bands.
