"DiLe" Afro-Cuban Orquesta

"Formed by violinist Juan P. Chavez, DiLe is a Latin group that has been long over due. The musicians are amazing talents from all over the world with a common fervor for Afro-Cuban music. Their shows are lively and filled with so much energy that it's almost impossible to not get up and start dancing; however, those who enjoy sitting back and watching a good performance can also be captivated by DiLe through their stellar showmanship."
