The group that helped start the popularity of Cumbia throughout Latin America, Sonora Dinamita, will be coming to the Rocky Point Convention Center Saturday, September 27th.
Hits like “Mi Cucu” and “Amor de Mis Amores” brought Columbian Cumbia to a worldwide audience starting in the 1980’s. The latest incarnation of the group is still on the road, and September’s event will help local charities through the sponsorship of the Rotary Club International.
At a recent press conference, club President Eduardo Vallejo Vazquez and members of the Puerto Penasco Mar de Cortez Rotary Club announced the event. After a long history here, the Rotary Club had been dormant for a number of years. Re-accredited just his Summer, the local Rotarians are wasting no time organizing an event for the benefit of the community. Proceeds from this event will be put to good use helping the local general hospital.
Saturday, September 27th will be a night for dancing. The opening act is Los Venturas de Caborca. Tickets for Sonora Dinamita are $200 pesos, $250 at the door.
