Fairway Colombo unveils Street Latin Night

Fairway Colombo brought about another impressive addition to their series of street events with the introduction of Street Latin Night, the first of which took place recently at Hospital Street, Colombo 1.

Leading the inaugural event was Sri Lanka’s own Kasun Dias – founder and principal teacher of Star Latino’s Dance Academy. The dancers took to the streets with renditions of Salsa, Bachata and Kizomba, grooving and moving to the Latin music beats.

The special guest for the night, Nelson Campos, one of the first internationally acclaimed Kizomba teachers/dance artists to visit Sri Lanka. Known as the Kizomba guru, Nelson is the teacher of teachers, the driving force behind many successful Kizomba teachers and dancers in Asia and around the world.

Street Latin Night is Fairway Colombo’s latest addition to the Hospital Street events calendar, which comprises of the Colombo Street Food Festival, Art & Jazz on the Street, Jam on the Street, Fairway Cultural Show, and Vinyl Night. It will be a regular event taking place on the first Tuesday of every month in collaboration with the National Dancesport Federation of Sri Lanka.

The concept of the street events came from the need to create a great location where people from various walks of life could come together to celebrate different forms of art and culture. It deviates from the high-end, closed doors cultural events and makes it accessible to everyone by bringing it out in to the streets.

Fairway Colombo is a subsidiary of Fairway Holdings, which supports local arts and culture through numerous initiatives.
