The fest  is free and audience members can join in the fun and learn the basic steps of this exciting dance form with beginner and intermediate classes by a Cuban dance instructor. Professional dancers from local salsa dance schools will be taking to the dance floor in demos too .    

Manteca features vocalists Liana Allegra Barciela and the legendary Sam Marais from KZN, Raul Rodriguez from Cuba and Kelly Burrows from Madagascar, award winning Durban pianist David Langely, Durban's own Mark Momple on bass, another Durbanite Jonathon Judge and Johan van der Molen from Holland on saxophones, local jazz trumpeter Daniel Sheldon, and percussionists John Drace from California and Alberto Chemane from Mozambique
