Yerbaklan set to perform at Costa Maya
Wednesday, July 13th, 2016
The entertainment lineup at the International Costa Maya Festival has gotten more exciting as the Honduran group Yerbaklan is set to perform for Tropical Night. On Friday, August 5th, the most recognized and established urban duo from Honduras will be adding to the fun onstage. Cesar Castaneda (Csarec), singer/songwriter of San Pedro Sula, Honduras and Jaime Colindres (Jimmy James) singer/song writer of Tegucigalpa, Honduras are no strangers to Costa Maya, having brought their energy to the stage in 2010. Now they will be back with some new and exciting originals.
Together they have performed on the best stages locally and internationally, with artists like Daddy Yankee, Don Omar, Wisin y Yandel, Mark Anthony. Yerbaklan has even performed at the Latin Billboard Awards! One of their greatest hits, Meneando La Cintura, has surpassed the million-view mark on YouTube. The tropical tune was done in collaboration with Panamanian artist Mr. Saik. Their collaborations also include “Ahora Marchate” with artist Nicky Jam.
Prepare yourselves for a fantastic night on Noche Tropical, because it will be Yerbaklan and Alison Hinds. Talk about energy and verve at the festival grounds!
Of course, the committee has prepared entertainment for the three nights of the festival, starting with the Reina de la Costa Maya pageant, which will feature eight contestants vying for the coveted crown currently held by Miss Honduras Gabriela Vanessa Salazar Valle. So far, we have confirmed participation from Miss Costa Rica Monique Rodriguez, Miss El Salvador Marlin Ramirez, Miss Guatemala Maria Jose Larrañaga Retolaza, Miss Honduras Corina Canales, Miss Nicaragua Vianca Yasuara Gutiérrez Hernández and Miss Panama Margareth Villanueva. The pageant will take place on Thursday, August 4th, the first night of the festival, at the Hon. Louis Sylvestre Sporting Complex in San Pedro Town.
On Saturday night, Noche Internacional, attendees will enjoy the fabulous sounds of the band Los Super Lamas.
