Feel the Latin dance grooves in the 2016 RAM Band show “PURA VIDA”! Our performance opens with the Big Bad Voodoo Daddy mambo I Wanna Be Like You and moves on to the salsa Sway by Michael Bublé. Next, we rock to Santana’s Oye Como Va before slowing things down with the classic bossa nova The Girl from Ipanema by Antonia Carlos Jobim. We close the show with some calienté salsa – Gloria Estefan’s Conga.
