SalsaFusion was founded in 2010 by Alain Joray. The idea is, as the name suggests, to bring together various dance schools in Basel in order to create great events.
SalsaFusion also because not only the well-known salsa on1, but also other dance styles such as Mambo on2, Pachanga or even completely different dances such as Kizomba are considered.
Alain has already organized four major Salsa parties (Mambo Night) under the salsafusion label in the Tanzpalast in Basel. The launch was on 23 October 2010, where Melissa Rosado from New York performed their famous Pachanga show. The DJ’s at the Mambo Night were all from Switzerland: DJ Ñoño, DJ Sammy, DJ Plinio, DJ Petitpas and DJ Faniatico.
Alain discovered Kizomba 2008 in Warsaw, Poland. In addition to the Mambo on2 NY Style Workshops with Melissa Rosado, he has repeatedly tried to make the new dance from Angola well known in Basel. He has already invited the following artists to Basel to give Kizomba workshops: Paula Loureiro and Ricardo Sousa, Afrolatinconnection from Porto, Portugal, Nelson Campos from London and Sophia Meyer from Zürich.
