Contest! Win Concert Tickets!

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The concert was CANCELLED because Eddie Palmieri needed to return early to the USA. Of course I'll have to cancel the contest as well, sorry for that, and thanks for your participation everyone!

You've probably noticed that we branched out our latin music activities recently. This spring and summer quite a few important latin artists pass though our tiny home country Belgium, so we decided to try the difficult but rewarding task of writing concert reviews. Mayra Andrade and the Spanish Harlem Orchestra were two big successes, and we hope to see even more latino performers do such a good job on unfamiliar soil.

The next concert sheduled for review is a real legend of latin music. Already over 50 years in the business with 38 full album releases and 9 Grammy awards, Eddie Palmieri is the unquestioned king of latin jazz. His latest tour (with the band La Perfecta II) brings him to the Ancienne Belgique concert hall in Brussels, more info on the show here. And we have some great news for all you Belgian/Dutch/French/German readers who can make it to la Bruxelles.

We're giving away 2 x 2 tickets for the Eddie Palmieri show on May 18th in Brussels! All you have to do to participate is answer this easy question: Which of the following albums did not win a Grammy award?

  1. La Perfecta II
  2. The Sun of Latin Music
  3. Listen Here!
  4. Solito
Mail your answer to laondatropical at gee-mail dot com before May 10th, 2PM central European time. Be sure to include your mailing address or we won't be able to send you the tickets!

This contest and the reviews wouldn't be possible without the help of the concert promotors and programmers, so here's a big up to Greenhouse Talent and De Roma, and a hat tip to for being always there to assist us!
