Latin America Vive Music Festival
Please see the full events listing for upcoming events.
Founded in 2013, Latin America Vive is a festival that aims to promote and celebrate Latin culture through its rich and thriving musical heritage. People of all walks of life are invited to come join in this celebration, which will feature the talent of performers and composers from Latin America and beyond. From salsa to Andean music, from boleros and chacareras to Latin jazz and fusion, a wide variety of genres from across the continent will be represented. Helmed by Fernando "Nando" Michelin, this special event serves as a dedication to Latin people everywhere, and a testament to the unifying power of their music. 2017’s Latin America Vive Festival will be dedicated in honor of Mili Bermejo, for her contribution to Latin music, and her previous work with the Vive Festival.
Mili Bermejo combined the emotionally resonant poetry and musical traditions of her Latin American heritage with the language of jazz to create a unique body of work as one of Boston’s premier vocalists, composers, and recording artists. Through her lifelong dedication to her craft and her guidance as an educator, she inspired and enriched the work of countless artists within the Berklee community.
