Musical fever! CECUT will become a dancefloor for its 41st anniversary

Enjoy more than 10 musical genres and dance the night away on Saturday, October 21

Of all kinds of artistic expressions, none of them reaches us as fast and automatic as music. For many, songs define special moments; they are the face of entire generations. To remember them is to relive a very specific time. And this is precisely what Centro Cultural Tijuana (CECUT) is proposing to do on its 41st anniversary with their event: Gran Salón Tijuana: Agua Caliente.

This Saturday, October 21, starting at 5 PM, CECUT invites all residents of Tijuana to attend the celebration of the 41st anniversary of one of the region's and the city's most significant venues.

The CECUT terrace will be the dancefloor of music that redefined not only past decades but the entire 20th century. Among the musical genres that will be performed there are jazz, big band, swing, rock and roll, twist, A Go-Go, disco music from the 70s and 80s, and tropical genres such as mambo and cumbia, all of which will provide rhythm and flavor on Saturday night. All of these genres were played in Tijuana during their peak at the old Casino Agua Caliente in the first decades of the 20th century.
