Tampa, FL – 1-800-411-PAIN will present the 12th installment of CONGA CALIENTE, taking place at Al Lopez Park – 4810 N Himes Avenue on Sunday, November 1st, 2015 from 11am to 6pm and featuring leading salsa singer Tito Nieves – El Pavarotti de la Salsa (The Pavarotti of Salsa Music).
Tito Nieves counts with three Ace Awards, in 1998 he was nominated for a Billboard award , a 1999 Globo award and a 2000 Premio Lo Nuestro. Tito’s work garnered him a 2002 GRAMMY® nomination for “Best Salsa Album.”
“Awards are wonderful, but the best recognition that an artist can receive comes from the public,” declared Tito, who received his nickname, “Pavarotti” of salsa music from Johnny Pacheco. “That was Johnny Pacheco’s idea during the Fania days when I had to record backup vocals, singing far away from the microphone. Johnny would look at me and say, “’You are like Pavarotti.’”
Also performing at the event will be Dominican merengue singer and GRAMMY® Award nominee, Bonny Cepeda. Viva Más, an all male vocal quintet and special guest Haila will round up the cast of performers.
Coda Sound is proud to produce this event which will bring once again leading Latin performers to celebrate our Hispanic Heritage. The festival will not only include top notch performers but also corporate exhibits about health, arts and ethnic foods. A beer garden will benefit local charities and there will be a fun domino tournament as well.
