“A big thank you to Diáspora for playing at our world music festival, bringing Latin sounds to Richmond Riverside and encouraging the crowd to move their feet! The band delivered a lively set and were prompt and reliable during the process.” - On The Edge World Music Festival 2013, Richmond Arts Service
★ ☆ Diáspora is one of the great choices we made for our wedding ☆ ★
First of all, thank you to Diáspora for your understanding of our needs.
- We didn't know how to book a band.
- We love salsa and Cuban music but not too serious.
- We didn't know much about salsa dancing.
- Most of our guests were not familiar with Latin music.
But we wanted to have Latin music because the wedding was in summer and it would make a difference and our guests would be interested.
So we had a problem to solve and Diáspora did it.
It was a calm and easy booking process. Diáspora knew exactly what we needed and took great patience to wait for us, to understand what we needed.
At our wedding party
> Background music
Diáspora played salsa music as background music in early time of the reception. Our guests enjoyed their conversation, moving their bodies to the music. Surprisingly, many guests knew some of the music!
> Easy to enjoy Latin music
Diáspora played some songs with something simple and easy rhythm to our guests that some kids started to dance ; )
> Get people grooving
And then after the dinner, Diáspora gave us a 5-minute salsa dance lesson. It was really successful!!! Many of our guests enjoyed so much to follow the rhythm, laughing at each other. After the lesson, guests were just enjoying dancing, forgetting about "how to dance" which is fantastic!
Our wedding party was very successful and the most important element was definitely Diáspora! Everybody was talking about the band after the party!!!
