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.

After her successful run in the Off Broadway production of the musical “I LIKE IT LIKE THAT” as China Rodriguez, the revolutionary daughter turned Young Lord, La Bruja performed a full-evening length compilation of songs for "Salsa Bruja" with a full band as part of Wave Hill's Bronx Salsa Fest (Aug 2017), featuring local dancers choreographed by Nilsa De La Luz.



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.
