Back to where it all started …

SBR Tito Nieves with SBR employees June 2013WILLEMSTAD - Last year August Fundashon Bon Intenshon (FBI) brought almost all the musicians who participated in the project of Salsa Giants, including the biggest names in the salsa world from all over the world, in the luxury hotel of Santa Barbara Plantation. These musicians, led by producer Sergio George, practiced in the Arawak ballroom for two full days of intense action in the third Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival. From this memorable concert  there were sounds and images recorded that led to a DVD with impressions of this unique performance. Hereby collaborated big names like Marc Anthony, Cheo Feliciano, Tito Nieves, Willy Chirino, Charly Zaa and Japanese singer Nora.

The launch of the DVD for the local and foreign press took place last Thursday at the place where it all started last year: the Arawak ballroom of the Santa Barbara Golf & Beach Resort Curacao. There were present Sergio George, his partner and FBI Chairman Gregory Elias and salsa singer Tito Nieves . The organization’s spokesman Percy Pinedo thanked the staff of the hotel for the excellent cooperation.
