Jesús la Rosa Pérez November 2021

Jesús la Rosa Pérez

19-21 November 2021


Hugely proud to present an absolute star representant of the Afro-Cuban culture in Stockholm for the first time (officially!) – Jesús la Rosa Perez!  From Santiago de Cuba but now residing in Helsinki, where he has opened his own school Sentimiento Manana – check out his FB-page to get to know more about his extensive career: We are extremely fortunate to have him in our neighbouring country and be able to have him coming here to share his knowledge and talent with us!

This weekend we will focuse mainly on the Franco-Haitian tradition, taking advantage of Jesús expertise on the subject. Most people only know about the yoruba tradition and palo, but the Afro-Cuban culture is so vast and extensive that you can spend a lifetime getting to know it – which is precisely what Jesús has done. So take the chance to expand your knowledge and have fun!!

All classes will be held at Studio Salsa, Västmannagatan 46, Stockholm

Finally! It is with great pleasure we welcome Yorgenis Danger García, “Yoyo”, back to Stockholm! We’ll have an exciting mix of salsa con afro, orishas, congo, rumba and bembé – just have a look at the schedule below! And we are extremely happy to have some live music again with Euro Rumba Ashé!

This time we also offer the opportunity to take contemporary classes!


ELEGGUA – He owns all roads, crossroads and doors and he can open or shut them as he pleases. Without his help nothing is possible. He is the messenger between heaven and earth, and is said to be present everywhere and at all times, watching us humans and all our actions. He is generally represented as a child, mischievous and playful. His colours are black and red, and in some cases black and white. His attribute is a forkshaped stick called garabato which he uses to clear the way.

OSHUN  – the mistress of all rivers and sweet waters. Her colours are yellow and gold. Her nature is seductive and sensual and she represents love, joy and sexuality. Her main attribute is a fan and she loves honey, which she uses to attract and seduce, together with her captivating laughter. But don’t be mistaken, she is a powerful orisha and can be vindictive when crossed!

OBBATALA – The greatest and the most respected of the orishas. He is the father of many of the other orishas and he was the one who created the human beings and therefore he is the owner of all heads. He represents peace, purity and harmony, although there is one ”camino”, shape, of him who is a warrior when he needs to make justice. His colour is white and his attribute a white iruke. Sometimes he represents an old man and sometimes a young prince, and he can also be male or female.

SHANGO – A king and a leader, proud and dominant. He represents male beauty, virility and masculinity. He is the master of fire, thunder and lightning and war, but also music, drumming and dancing. His colours are red and white and his attribute a two-edged axe.
