If you've never heard Danza Kuduro, go find it on YouTube and prepare to have it playing back in your head nonstop, pretty much like it has on Miami's radio and club scene for four years. Even if you don't understand the Spanish or the Portuguese interludes, it's insanely catchy. (Probably why there are like 15 remixes.)
You're sure to hear it Saturday night at the University of South Florida Sun Dome when reggaeton superstar and Kuduro singer Don Omar comes to town for 92.5 Maxima FM's Fiesta Maxima. Also known as El Rey (the King), the Puerto Rican has won Latin Grammys and Latin Billboard awards galore for supplying dance favorites like Hasta Que Salga el Sol (Until the Sun Comes Up), Zumba, Hasta Abajo (Get Down) and Taboo.
If Latin-flavored hip-hop like reggaeton isn't your thing, the Don will be joined by Bronx-born bachata crooner Prince Royce, a favorite with the ladies. ("Ladies, y'all already know," followed by a falsetto "Rooooyce" is his signature.) Nominated for 16 Latin Billboard awards this year, the swiftly rising star of Dominican heritage is all charm with romantic ditties like Corazón Sin Cara (Faceless Heart), Incondicional (Unconditional) and Darte un Beso (Give You a Kiss) as well as a bilingual version of Stand By Me.
In its third year, Fiesta Maxima is moving from the amphitheater at the fairgrounds to the Sun Dome, adding more price levels. $24.25-$101.75. (813) 974-3004. Show starts at 8:30 p.m.
