Los Van Van

Cuba
♦   Saturday 21:45, Main Stage

Los Van Van released almost 40 (!) albums, they won a Grammy Award for 'Llegó Van Van' (2000) and have 50 years of live experience! After previous shows at Antilliaanse Feesten (2000) and Antilliaanse Feesten Indoor (2006) 'El Tren de la Música Cubana' is coming back for a third time. They will be celebrating '50 Años de Songo' on a big European tour in August.

In 1969 Juan Formell started the band and combined the classical charanga-orchestra with modern pop-, rock-, and funk influences, like synthesizers and drum machines. Under his supervision Los Van Van grew out to be thé leading timba-group in Cuba. Since his passing in 2014, the train kept going under the leadership of his son Samuel.

We are expecting a great show, Cuban heritage and beautiful music from the masters of timba-music.

Our favourite 'Mi Chocolate'.
