Celebrating its 8th Anniversary, Texas’ largest live salsa music, dance and health festival, Salsa y Salud presents POWER IN UNITY: a dynamic production saluting the City of Houston, First Responders, and Houstonians as they came together in the aftermath of one of our city’s most devastating natural disasters – Hurricane Harvey. With support from the Texas Commission on the Arts, City of Houston, American Heart Association, Houston Arts Alliance, Silver Eagle Distributors, Rice University Boniuk Institute, and others, this year’s installment celebrates the remarkable recovery the city had, honors the lives of victims, and reminds us that still after a year, they’re many still affected by the hurricane. An original, multi-media, new production features special musical arrangements, world premieres, new choreography and staging – all inspired and commissioned for this occasion. Salsa y Salud is sponsored in part by the City of Houston through Miller Theatre Advisory Board.

Produced by Flamart in collaboration with Foundation for Modern Music and Strictly Street Salsa, the 2018 performance features representation from more than 15 countries and an international cast of over 30 artists, among them Manolo Mairena, Jorge Orta y su Tumbaká, Reinaldo Costa, Sandi Morales, Raúl Orlando Edwards, Julio Rodriguez, Katherine Ocando, Strictly Street Salsa dancer, and many more.
