Célia Cruz and Oscar D'Leon with guests: David « Fathead » Newman and Chico Freeman

In four years time, L'Événement Alcan has become a tradition in the Festival's history. A spectacular rendez-vous whose headliners are impatiently awaited each year. The stunning success obtained last year by Pat Metheny, on McGill College street, is a hard act to follow, and festival-goers are in for quite a surprise, to say the least! On a stage set up on boulevard René-Lévesque, facing West and offering excellent visibility to one and all, two of the most electrifying ambassadors of salsa: Célia Cruz and Oscar D'Leon. The  former, who has made more than 70 recordings since her first 78s in the forties, represent for millions of Latin-Americans the undisputed queen of the genre. The other, a virtuoso singer-doublebassist, is without question one of the best salsa conductors ever. Accompanied for the event by jazzmen extraordinaries David "Fathead" Newman and Chico Freeman, the evening promises to be splellbinding, feverish, furious... reminiscent of the "Salsa Meets Jazz" Monday evenings that are ail the rage at New York's Village Gate. L'Événement Alcan with Célia Cruz et Oscar D'Leon: the biggest outdoor dancing ever on boulevard René-Lévesque. Watch your step!

In collaboration with CKAC73AM
