The Brownsville Latin Jazz Festival is putting all you Latin music lovers and dancers to the challenge.
As the festival gets ready to commemorate its 25th anniversary, the Brownsville Society of Performing Arts is launching a TikTok Challenge. The BSPA has decided to pay tribute to Tito Puente, the King of Latin Jazz, with a TikTok dance challenge to his song Ran Kan Kan.
Ran Kan Kan is one of the King of Latin Jazz’s most notable songs and a dance has been choreographed to reflect the spirit of the song and the festival, and you’re invited to get involved in the movement with a fun TikTok challenge, the BSPA stated in a media release.
