Salsa Bruja builds on a previous collaboration, La Consulta, between Caridad De La Luz/ La Bruja with composer/musician Desmar Guevara, choreographer Nilsa De La Luz, a full band, back-up singers and a group of Salsa dancers that performed a sold-out show in June 2014 at Pregones Theater.

Salsa Bruja is scheduled for a performance in August 2017 for inter-generational audiences at Wave Hill’s “Sunset Wednesdays.”

La Consulta / The Consultation

In La ConsultaCaridad De La Luz/La Bruja offers a spiritual consultation through the Latin-Caribbean roots of bomba y plena, salsa, merengue, and bolero, all framed in hip-hop beats and poetry inspired by NYC.

This bilingual performance bridges generations to offer a guided journey through Latin Caribbean classics, original songs and contemporary music — delivered Brujalicious Style.

Collaborators include: Grammy winner Eddie Montalvo and Desmar Guevara, and choreographer Nilsa De La Luz and dancers.
