CONCERT (8:30pm-9:30pm | $15): Saltapatrás is a group founded in 2012 in Mexico City, conformed by Cecilia Pérez Urias and Diego Pérez. Their music is made up of original compositions and arrangements that honor the aesthetics of popular and traditional music from Mexico and the world. The diversity of musical elements that make up his proposal derives from their own, original and striking sound. For their presentations, Saltapatrás combines music with narrative and theater, generating scenic-musical shows on various themes. For this concert, they will play together with Dan Neville as their special guest. There will be a Fandango at the end where everyone is invited to participate!
