Today I wanted to share with you some exciting news about our activities in Latin America.
We just came back from a successful clinic tour with artist Diego Gale in Cali, Barranquilla and Bogotá, Colombia. More than 500 fans came to these clinics, among them very important colombian percussionists who came to support Diego and who also jumped on stage to play with him. These events were very important for MEINL and we couldn't be happier with the results and the support from the fans who are still talking about how much they learned from Diego. In the event in Bogotá the artist Rodny Theran also participated.
Another exciting event is the 3rd Central America Percussion Festival in Panama where our artist Edwin Clemente will be participating as clinician and conductor. Also in this event MEINL will be represented by local artists Rey Cruz and Oscar Cruz. This festival will take place on August 30, 2014 and you can see more info on the poster above. Edwin's participation in this event is being co-sponsored by our local distributor Cia. Alfaro.
In September we will be visiting the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where we are going to meet with several of our artists like William "Kachiro" Thompson, Rigo Collazo, Andrew Lazaro, Raul Rodriguez "Tatoo", Raul Maldonado, Juan Picorelli, Raul Rosario, Andrés Cruz and Beto Torrens. While in Puerto Rico we will be at the 2nd MEINL Day at Stevan Micheo Music that will close with a clinic by Edwin Clemente.
Finally, in October we will go back to Mexico for a tour of clinics/product demonstrations, cities and dates to be announced so stay tuned.
As you can see these are very busy months for us so we hope to see you soon in one of these countries.
