Nueva Manteca (Amsterdam)

Celebrating 100 years since the birth of Leonard Bernstein with the Latino version of West Side Story!

Nueva Manteca is definitely one of the world’s premier Latin music bands. Their unique projects attract a lot of attention.

100 years after his birth, the band presents a special tribute to composer Leonard Bernstein, with a new twist on one of the most iconic American musicals: West Side Story. Ever since it first premiered on Broadway in 1957, the musical has had hundreds of adaptations worldwide. In this version, Nueva Manteca will blend the classic tunes with their vision of spreading Salsa and Latin music.

Songs such as Tonight, Maria, I feel pretty and others will take center stage, as well as famous salsa tunes from the band’s regular repertoire.
