Ipak, ono što ovaj posao čini najljepšim je činjenica da uključuje Vas – predivne, pozitivne ljude koji nam ukazuju svoje povjerenje već devet godina za redom. Stara izreka kaže da je čovjek onoliko bogat, koliko ima prijatelja. Ako je to istina, mi smo onda najbogatiji ljudi na svijetu! :)

Still, what makes this kind of job beautiful is the fact that includes you – amazing, positive people which support us with your trust for the ninth year in a row. An old saying says that a man is rich if he has friends. If this is true, we can proudly say that we are the richest people in the world! :)

Hvala Vam još jednom na ukazanom povjerenju, nadamo se da ćemo Vas i ove godine oboriti s nogu! Vaši Alan, Ani, Daniela, Danijel, Dinka, Marko, Martina, Rosemarie, Sanda, Vlado i Željka

vaka festivalska godina nosi sa sobom nove velike izazove, ali i one lijepe stvari koje te izazove pretvaraju u mačji kašalj. Ova nam je godina posebna jer smo u promociji festivala prešli granice Europe, produbili stara prijateljstva, stekli nova i još jednom dodatno obogatili duh koji unosimo i u organizaciju našeg festivala. Ova je godina posebna i zato što imamo puno dodatnih sadržaja, novih lokacija, novih instruktora te smo prvi puta dva festivala spojili u jedinstvenih jedanaest dana plesnog užitka. Ono po čemu ova godina nije posebna je naša želja i volja za nečim boljim... taj je entuzijazam jednako snažan kao i svih prethodnih godina! I ove godine probijamo granice, dižemo letvicu, više nam ni nebo nije granica. Tko zna kamo će nas odvesti iduća :)

CROATIAN SUMMER SALSA FESTIVAL I 2013

very new festival brings not only new challenges, but also a lot of beautiful things which make these challenges a piece of cake. This year is special for us because we crossed the European borders in promoting our festival, we strengthened some old friendships, made some new ones and one more time enriched our spirit which helps us improve our festival every year. This year is also special because we have numerous new surprises, new locations and new instructors and we managed to merge our two festivals into one unique 11-days-dance-treat! However, this year is not special in one aspect – our enthusiasm and striving for more is the same as during all previous years! One more time we push the limits, raise standards, even the sky is not the limit any more. Who knows where we’ll end up next year :)

ŠTO JE SALSA FESTIVAL?

S

alsa festival ili kongres je događaj na kojem se plesači, koreografi, glazbenici i općenito zaljubljenici u ples i glazbu okupljaju kako bi naučili, usavršili ili jednostavno uživali u toj umjetnosti. Salsa festivali su usmjereni na povećanje popularnosti salse i srodnih plesova te pružanju kvalitetne i aktivne zabave. Obično se sastoje od dnevnog programa u obliku plesnih radionica koje drže međunarodno priznati instruktori, dok se večernji program sastoji od show nastupa, plesnih zabava i koncerata uživo. Ono što naš organizacijski tim smatra vrlo važnim je to što salsa festivali nude program ne samo za iskusne plesače, nego i za apsolutne početnike. Ovaj festival je otvoren i za potpune početnike koji će nakon pohađanja radionica definitivno naučiti plesati salsu! Naš cilj je podijeliti strast, kreativnost, pozitivnu energiju i zabaviti se učeći. Radionice osmišljene za početnike dati će vam osnove koje ćete potom moći isprobati na partijima. Ako nikada prije niste plesali, ovo je pravi festival za Vas! Međunarodni ljetni salsa festival u Rovinju jedan je od najupečatljivijih plesnih festivala u Europi pa i u svijetu. To je možda jedini salsa događaj u Europi koji svoj program ne temelji isključivo na zatvorenim kongresnim lokacijama i dvoranama, već u svoje aktivnosti uključuje i cijeli grad Rovinj koji se tada pretvara u veliku plesnu pozornicu. Kako je od 2009. godine program bitno proširen, Hrvatski ljetni salsa festival postao je sedmodnevni događaj prepun vrhunske glazbe, zabave i plesa, a grad Rovinj jedna od top salsa destinacija.

CROATIAN SUMMER SALSA FESTIVAL I 2013


WHAT IS A SALSA FESTIVAL?

S

alsa festivals or congresses are events where dancers, choreographers, musicians and dance enthusiasts in general, meet and share their passion through dancing. Salsa festivals are aimed towards increasing the popularity of salsa and related dances which salsa was built on. Usually, festivals consist of daily workshops held by international instructors while night program brings you the best of show performances, parties and live concerts. Our organizing team considers very important the fact that festivals are not only for experienced dancers, but for absolute beginners too. This festival is BEGINNER FRIENDLY and we will teach you how to dance salsa! Our goal is to share passion, creativity, positive energy and to have fun while still learning a lot. Special beginner workshops will give you the basics of salsa dancing which you will be able to practice on the parties. If you have never danced before, this is the right festival for you! Croatian Summer Salsa Festival is definitely one of the UNIQUE festivals in EUROPE and worldwide. It is maybe the only salsa event in Europe that, next to congress halls, involves the whole town of ROVINJ as its dance stage. Since we included 2 EXTRA PRE-FESTIVAL DAYS and a boat trip after the festival Croatian Summer Salsa Festival has become a 7 day event of outstanding music, dance and fun and Rovinj a TOP SALSA DESTINATION for your summer holidays.

Već smo prošle godine uveli dnevne partyje u PARADISO BEACH BARU, a ove godine ćete moći plesati i na AMARIN BEACH PARTYJIMA, dok će noćni partyji trajati do ranih jutarnjih sati (06.00!).

POJMOVNIK / GLOSSARY Afro-Cuban is one of many dance forms originating in Latin countries. Although they share some characteristics, the various forms of Latin dance also reflect the unique style and culture of their countries of origin. For example, we have flamenco dancing in Spain, the tango in Argentina, and the merengue and bachata in the Dominican Republic. The contexts of dance within these cultures vary: people dance for social or for religious reasons, as part of rituals or community celebrations, and as performance art. In Cuba, music and dance are inseparable. From religious music to rumba, danzón, son, chachachá, timba...the rhythms and the dances were created simultaneously as inseparable parts of the same whole.

AFRO-CUBAN FOLKLORIC DANCES

›› Afro-Cuban folkloric and religious dance is a genre with a lot of different dances from several African countries brought to Cuba during the colonization of the Third World. We can separate them in two main categories. There are religious dances of Yoruba people from Nigeria (Orishas) and dances of different bantú tribes from Congo (Palo, Yuka, Abakua).

RUMBA

›› There are various styles of Afro-Cuban rumba music and dance, but they all have strong influences from African drumming and dance and Spanish/Gitano poetry, singing and dance. The clave beat (2-3 or 3-2) plays a very important role in all rumba styles. Afro- Cuban rumba is entirely different than ballroom rumba or the African style of pop music called rumba. Rumba developed in rural Cuba is still danced in Havana, Mantanzas and other Cuban cities but these days ... influences from jazz and hip hop.

YAMBU

COMPARSA

GUAGUANCO

TRADITIONAL POPULAR DANCE (BAILES POPULARES)

›› This is the oldest known style of rumba, sometimes called the old people’s rumba because of its slower beat. It can be danced alone (especially by women) or by men and women together. Although male dancers may flirt with female dancers during the dance, they do not use the vacunao - the symbolic, sexual “vaccination” - used in rumba guaguanco.

›› Rumba Guaguanco is faster than yambu, with more complex rhythms, and involves flirtatious movements between a man and a woman. The woman may both entice and “protect herself” from the man, who tries to catch the woman off-guard with a vacunao - tagging her with the flip of a hankerchief or by throwing his arm, leg or pelvis in the direction of the woman, in a symbolic attempt touching or sexually contacting her. When a man attempts to give a woman a vacunao, she uses her skirt to protect her pelvis and then whip the sexual energy away from her body.

COLUMBIA

›› In this fast and energetic style of rumba, with a 6/8 feel, solo male dancers provoke the drummers to play complex rhythms that they imitate through their creative and sometimes acrobatic movements. Men may also compete with other men to display their agility, strength, confidence and even sense of humor. Columbia incorporates many movements derived from Congo dances as well as Spanish flamenco, and recently more and more dancers incorporates breakdancing and hip hop moves. Women are also beginning to dance Columbia, too.

›› Cuban comparsa is the dance of the street carnival and is more commonly known as „conga line“. It is loud, flashy and fun, with dancers in colorful and and musicians playing horns (trumpets, trombones, tubas, etc.), percussion instruments (maracas, bongos, congas, guiros, batas, claves, checkeres, surdos, tamborines) and whistles.

›› In addition to traditional Afro-Cuban folkloric styles, Cuba is also known for its popular traditional dances such as Son, Cha Cha Cha, Danzon and Mambo.

DANZON

›› Created by Miguel Failde Pérez in 1879, Danzón is the national dance of Cuba and evolved from Danza. The music structure – A B A B A - consists of an introduction, A, just used for dancers to make acquaintance, flirt or stroll the dance floor. Then a dance section starts (B), to go back to the introduction and repeat the sequence again. The dance style is elegant yet extremely sensual and flavorful; it is danced off the beat and includes square figures.

SON

›› Son is derived from Cuba’s African (drumming, complex rhythms) and Spanish roots (instrumentation, poetic style), and is the precursor of what is now called salsa. Originally rural music that developed as an accompaniment to dancing, it became a popular in Cuba’s urban areas in the 20th century. Eventually, it was adapted to modern

CROATIAN SUMMER SALSA FESTIVAL I 2013


instrumentation and larger bands. Traditional Son instrumentation could include the tres (a type of guitar with three sets of closely spaced strings), standard guitars and various hand drums and other percussion instruments. Many sons also include parts for trumpets and other brass instruments, due to the influence of American jazz. Son, the dance, starts with the formal, closed embrace of the man and woman. The couple maintains a very upright frame, with quick flirtatious and sensual side-to-side movements of the shoulders, torso and hips accenting the underlying six count rhythm of the feet. Son is danced contratiempo, meaning, off the beat, so the couple moves on the half beat before one.

CHA CHA CHA

›› Cha Cha Cha arose in the early ‘50s as an offshoot of Danzon and Mambo, and was created by Enrique Jorrin – the original rhythm is an onomatopoeia of the sound of the percussion and the one created by the dancer’s feet dragging on the ground. Cha-chacha is danced off beat (the dance starts with three quick changes of weight -- thus the name cha-cha-cha -- preceded by two slow and a pause). It was later adopted and commercialized by ballroom dancers who for teaching purposes (for those unable to identify the beat) cha was dropped and it became only Cha-cha. In Cha Cha Cha, like mambo and rumba, the dancers’ hips are relaxed, allowing free movement in the pelvic section.

MAMBO

›› Mambo is a modification of Afro-Cuban rhythms and particularly the Danzon. It was created by Israel “Cachao” Lopez, and infused with American jazz band

CROATIAN SUMMER SALSA FESTIVAL I 2013

format. Mambo was danced in the same upbeat and sassy manner as American swing.

CASINO

›› Casino is a holly Cuban dance developed during the mid and late 1960s in Havana. It is a form of what is sometimes called “Cuban Salsa“ (outside of Cuba) as distinct from New York or Los Angeles styles.

SALSA

›› The history of the “Salsa” dance is peppered with hearsay and contradiction. Although few would disagree that the music and dance forms originate largely Cuban Son, most agree that Salsa, as we know it today, is a North American interpretation of the older forms of music and dance. New York’s Latino community had a vibrant musical and dancing scene throughout the ‘50s but found limited success with the ‘Anglo’ mainstream. In the 1970s, the adoption of the term “Salsa” reduced the linguistic and cultural barriers to mainstream and worldwide adoption of Latin music and dance.

TIMBA

›› Musically, timba is the result of an innovative fusion of elements drawn from multiple directions. It is a fusion of jazz and rumba, with hip-hop and reggae thrown in. It has its roots in son, the guitar-and-brassdriven Afro-jazz band sound of the fifties.

of two round polished sticks that are struck together. Clave pattern may be played on other percussion instruments as well. Even when clave is not explicitly present in the music, Afro-Cuban musicians feel its pattern and dancers move to its rhythm as it is a heart.

BACHATA

›› Bachata is a style of dance that originated in the Dominican Republic. It is danced widely all over the world but not identically. The basics to the dance are three-step with a Cuban hip motion, followed by a tap including a hip movement on the 4th beat. The knees should be slightly bent so the performer can sway the hips easier. Generally, most of the dancer’s movement is in the lower body up to the hips, and the upper body moves much less.

KIZOMBA

›› Kizomba is one of the most popular genres of dance and music originating in Angola. It is a mix of traditional Angolan semba with kilapanda and merengue sung generally in Portuguese, wrongly confused with zouk, because the pace is very similar. In Europe the word “kizomba” is used for any type of music derived from zouk, even if not of Angolan origin. The kizomba dancing style is also known to be very sensual and flows with a music of a romantic flow.

CLAVE

›› Uniting Afro-Cuban music and dance the clave is a rhythmic pattern, meaning “key.” The word clave not only refers to this characteristic rhythm but it also refers to a Cuban percussion instrument consisting

LOS MAMBEROS

D

ance studio Los Mamberos from Zagreb was founded in January 2005. Ever since, its quality work and contagious enthusiasm have made it a symbol for top class dancing and superb organization of dance related events. The core of the group is made of successful individuals, proven in other areas of expertise, who decided to elevate their hobby to another level, and in doing so, improve the quality and diversity of dance scene in Croatia and beyond. All members are salsa instructors with knowledge and long experience in organizing events of high quality supported by dancers from all over the world. The largest and most popular event organized by Los Mamberos is Croatian Summer Salsa Festival. The first festival took place in 2005 and ever since has grown bigger and more popular among Croatian and international dancers. Today the event can be easily placed among the best ones in the world! Because of the great interest in sensual dances, last year Los Mamberos organized another festival in Rovinj - Summer Sensual Days, first of this kind in Croatia. It was imagined as a small and intimate event and it definitely brought some smoothness and elegance to the salsa craze. The quality of this event was also recognized by our guests so the tickets for the “sensual days” were sold out already two months before the event. Make sure to get your tickets for the next edition on time, since the number will also be limited ;)

Dance studio Los Mamberos regularly organizes various events, show performances and salsa parties. Its instructors often teach and perform at events in Croatia as well as abroad. Regular classes are held in Zagreb in Česki dom, Šubićeva 20. More info about the dance studio at www.mamberos.com More info about Croatian Summer Salsa Festival at www.crosalsafestival.com
