Argentine Duo Bohemia Viva at South Broadway on October 21st

Press Release [ Tue Oct 18 2016 1:00 PM ]

South Broadway Cultural Center will host one of the hottest groups to come out of Argentina when Bohemia Viva takes the stage of the John Lewis Theatre on Friday, October 21 at 7pm.

The vocal duet formed by Luis Lujan, who is from Cordoba, and Andrea Mottura, who is originally from Santa Fe, combine the cultures of the Latin, European, and American cultures where they have toured extensively. They perform with high energy and passion for the music they perform in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and English.

In a past interview in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where they now reside, the duo described the music of Argentina as having a long history and being very diverse, depending on the region. Internationally, the tango is one of the best-known genres, although in the interior of the nation, folk music dominates.

Domestic rock also has taken an important space in the culture since the 1960s, and from there came many other musical styles present in the nation: reggae, jazz, bolero, electronic music, cumbia and punk.

They described Mexican music as being infused with diverse influences, and a foundation of the culture of the nation, with the people conserving their musical roots; participating in musical expression in a natural way.

The mix of cultural influences on their music will have the audience cheering for more.
Don't miss the one-night-only performance of this exciting duo! Tickets are $15 per person and are available at
