Indestructible: The Soul of Salsa, a 90-minute music documentary directed by David Pareja, developed organically as a way to document the recording process and the significance behind

El Cigala’s Indestructiblealbum. This album was nominated for a 2018 Grammy Award in the category of Best Tropical Latin Album. The music documentary takes audiences on a visual journey through the history of Salsa from its inception until the very moment when El Cigala gives it his own flare. In the film, Diego drives his strong personality as a musician to the open roads that lead from Colombia to New York via Cuba (Havana), Puerto Rico (San Juan), The Dominican Republic and Miami.Since Miami is featured in the documentary, it’s the perfect city to celebrate its release and share the story behind the making of the film with his local fans.

The Miami concert is part the 2018 Indestructibletour. Throughout this year, El Cigala has performed for audiences in the United States, Central America, Latin America, Canada and Europe. After his performance in Miami, El Cigala andhis eight-piece bandwill move on to countries like Colombia and Spain. Indestructible is El Cigala’s most ambitious and most personal project yet, a dream shared by El Cigala and his late wife, Amparo, who passed away in August of 2015. “We both liked salsa a lot,” he says, softly. “But the salsa that is no longer played, 70s salsa, the Fania sound, salsadura (hard salsa).”

Inspiring new steps for a rhythm that has always been synonymous with life, happiness, hopes and dreaming, the film is an homage to the FANIA heritage of Music. Throughout the film,

El Cigala performs with an all-star cast includingsinger Oscar D’Leon, pianists Gonzalo Rubalcabaand Larry Harlow, trumpeter Luis “Perico” Ortiz, and many of the original Fania studio musicians. Every performance becomes a nostalgic visit to the past while creatively renewing the soul of the genre’s future.

The sneakers are designed to look like bare feet bedecked in bling. So many toe rings!
