The Riverfront Latin World Rhythms Festival Comes to Mortensen Riverfront Plaza in Hartford on Saturday
For the last 20 years, guitarist Daniel Salazar (pictured) has made it a point to team top string-benders with orchestras under the heading Guitar Under the Stars. This Saturday, the tradition continues at the Riverfront Latin World Rhythms Festival, a brand-spanking new addition to the Riverfront's already packed calendar. Salazar and company will close the festival, but head over early for Trio Surcari (world music played on more than 40 instruments, tango ensemble Los Chantas, Colombian musickers Cumbiamba and other top-flight artists. If you're a dancer, there'll be plenty to keep you occupied in addition to the music; dance instructors will on hand all afternoon, along with a bar serving beer and wine (to help limber up the old legs and feet).
