Get a jolt of Latin energy with DESCARGA LATINA!

Winnipeg's HOT Latin dance band brings together three of the city's seasoned Latin American musicians, Marcelo Ulloa (vocals), Gerardo Munòz (timbales) and Carlos Diaz (congas) who, with a fresh blend of live percussion and vocals with the added element of great orchestration through the use of a sequencer, will have you dancing to Latin music full of passion with a sizzling beat.

Special thanks to Folklorama and Christian Hidalgo-Mazzei, Folklorama Agency Producer, for giving us a great Latin connection for Folklore Festival 2024!

The HOT Latin Band, DESCARGA LATINA from Folklorama fame in Winnipeg will rock the house on Saturday.
