!, the open-air salsa dance party in Jessie Square (near the Contemporary Jewish Museum), takes place on the third Thursday of each month from May to September from 6:00pm – 7:30pm.
A protégé of Cuban conga legend Luis “Changuito” Quintana, Havana-born Carlitos Medrano has played an important role on the Bay Area’s Latin music scene over the past decade. After several years as a sought-after sideman, he decided to launch Sabor De Mi Cuba, a band dedicated to hard-charging Cuban salsa. Since releasing his debut album in 2012, Medrano has earned a reputation as a world class purveyor of authentic Cuban soul. Boasting a book Medrano’s finely wrought original tunes, the talent-packed Sabor De Mi Cuba features the soaring vocals of Julio Bouza, who hails from an illustrious Cuban musical clan.
