La Bamba!

La Bamba! is an explosive new musical starring Strictly Come Dancing’s Pasha Kovalev, The Wanted’s Siva Kaneswaran and rising star Inês Fernandez in the lead role of Sofia. With breath-taking choreography from Strictly favourite and Italian Latin champion Graziano Di Prima, Erica Da Silva and associate choreography by Giada Lini.

A jaw-dropping new production – La Bamba! combines Latin, R&B, and timeless rock and pop to tell the ultimate feel-good story of a young Latin American girl with a big voice, big dreams, and an even bigger heart.

How can one decision alter her story for ever?

Sofia, a 17-year-old from Los Angeles, has rhythm in her blood. From the moment her father handed her a guitar, her dream was to become a superstar. However, Sofia will discover that whilst talent can make you a star, it’s fate that can make you a legend. Inspired by her musical heroes and with the help of her family, Sofia will bring together a community that has never felt more divided.

La Bamba! is directed by multi-award-winning American director Ray Roderick and features music from across the Latin genre, from traditional folk songs to recent chart-topping hits, all arranged by award-winning maestro Alfonso Casado-Trigo.

A beautiful exploration of Latin culture and heritage, this is a fiery summer fiesta celebrating the power of music and how it can transform generations and bring people together.
