Free Ritmo Doral festival to return in 2021

After being canceled last year, Ritmo Doral is back! Albeit, the free, family friendly festival will take place virtually in 2021.

The Rhythm Foundation and the City of Doral will present the popular event on Saturday, March 20, from 5 to 10 p.m.

The schedule for the 2021 Ritmo Doral:

  • 6 p.m.: TAMBOKA, playing Latin grooves infused with gypsy jazz swing.
  • 7:30 p.m.: SONLOKOS, featuring Afro Cuban Son, timba and traditional Cuban rhythms with elements of hip-hop and electronic music.
  • 9 p.m.: ENSAMBLE 7/4, featuring seven young members of El Sistema (Venezeula’s legendary national youth music program), who came together to extend the boundaries of academic music to include Venezuelan folk music, Latin American music and jazz.

The annual event was created to promote the community’s cultural, diplomatic, business and tourism ties. It is made possible through sponsors such as Baptist Health South Florida, Codina Partners and the Doral Yard. For more information, click here
