Segunda Quimbamba Newsletter: One Month Away!


Thank you to everyone who came out to see Segunda Quimbamba at the 4th of July event at Liberty State Park – it was so very nice to celebrate with everyone!

We survived an overcast misty day for the Summer Solstice Lechon Asado. There were almost 100 guests twice as many as last year.  Thank you to our gracious hosts: Ivette & Carlos Alvarez y gracias a Ernesto el lechonero for making us all a delicious, sabroso lechon!

Thank you to all our guests who stayed even through the ‘Pon la Silla en La Mesa’ cuento believing it would help keep the rain away – wife’s tale from…Puerto Rico! (Keep that chair on the table!) It seemed to work!

Great food, company, music, stories, and laughter! Thank you to all the volunteers! Thank you for all the donations of time and financial support and thank you most of all for the sharing of family, friends and music! Oh, tambien, of course, el lechon asado!

No podemos creer – we can’t believe we are ONE MONTH away FROM BOARDING FLIGHTS… Galicia en espera de Segunda Quimbamba!

We are happy to share Segunda Quimbamba is on course to meet our goal for the Go Spain Go International Campaign. With your continued support of attendance, inviting your friends, and family to the July events, and with only 15 % remaining to reach campaign goal, we are on track for success. It’s truly unbelievable – ALMOST THERE!!!

Join us in the events leading up to the Tour by attending and supporting the great events planned and public performances we will participate in throughout July.
