Colombia: Cali’s Salsa Circus

Vicki Kellaway writes about Cali's salsa circus in her blog Banana Skin Flip Flops: “there are the clowns, the devils and the daring trapeze artists. Then there are the tiny sequin dresses, the winning smiles and the principal dancers whose feet move so quickly they almost cease to exist. Throw all of that into a huge circus tent on a balmy night in a city park, add a bottle of rum and 1,000 enthralled Colombians and you have yourself a party.”
