Utah State University’s Latino Student Union (LSU) presents “Salsabration,” music, dance and song from Latin American cultures. This cultural showcase is in the Taggart Student Center Ballroom Friday (September 17) at 7 p.m. LSU Adviser is Sam Curley. “There will be musicians, vocalists and dancers, involving USU students as well as community members,” said Curley. He said a Provo-based group will perform, Los Hermanos de los Andes, specializing in Andean and Peruvian music. “They use traditional instruments dating back to the Incan civilization,” said Curley. A mariachi band, Mariachi Zavala from Ogden, will play traditional folk music from Mexico celebrating the 200th anniversary of the country’s independence. “Most of the performers are from Mexico,” said Curley. “The USU Ballroom Dance team will perform a ‘salsa’ as well as USU’s Folklorico dancers with traditional Latin dances.” “We have had similar events to this,” said Curley, “but nothing like this where we have invited community members to be a part of the program. “We’re excited about this, we really want the community to celebrate with us. Tickets are available at the Card Office in the Taggart Center and in Logan at Rita’s Market and La Ranchera. There will be an after-show dance at the Taggart Center International Lounge, 9 p.m. to midnight.
