Aventura Blog

Super group Aventura has amassed more accomplishments and accolades than any other bachata group in existence! For this reason alone, I was thrilled to be at their "farewell" party as they concluded the last leg of their US based tour. La fiesta, sponsored by Hennessy, was at the exclusive penthouse floor of the Rivington Hotel in New York City. You could sense everyone's excitement as they waited for the group to arrive. The energy built up by Romeo, Henry, Lenny and Max earned them an incredible year that lead to four sold out concerts in Madison Square Garden, nine Latin Billboard awards including latin artist and album of the year, and a trip to the white house to celebrate latin heritage with President Obama. If that wasn't enough to put them on top, their hit single, Obsesion went to number one across the globe in Italy! With their popularity and reach running wild, it was sad for most of us here in New York to imagine that they won't be back for a while. Rumors were running rampant about the group splitting up to work on solo projects so I couldn't wait to ask them myself! My time finally came as Lenny and Max stepped onto the carpet. I was able to breathe a sigh of relief as they assured me that they will indeed be back together to record another album. Gracias a dios! Of course, in the meantime, they will also be involved in solo projects, but that only adds to what this super talented group brings to the world. Their popularity en el mundo latino has been regarded to be as massive as that of the Beatles. Only time will tell if this is actually true and whether or not the group can amass the same popularity in mainstream american society. However, it is clear to them, and to all of who are fans, that they are truly living a grand aventura! Let's see where they land next! In the meantime, check out to see the video footage! I'm Leticia Reyes reporting for En La Escena!

Blog Latin Trends

Hola Chicos! It’s your girl Paola Cancellieri once again, bringing you the latest 411.

En La Escena was present at the Re-Launch Party of “Latin Trends Magazine” this past Friday June 26th. The party took place at LQ Nightclub

There I had the pleasure of interviewing the Founder of Latin Trends Juan Guillen. To hear him speak the way he did was very inspiring to me. The commitment he has towards our Latino community could be heard in every word he spoke! For me he was the highlight of the night! In my interview with Mr.Guillen, You will realize the commitment he has with the bicultural Latino consumer and why its important for “Latin Trends” to deliver a high quality product just for us!

The night was charmed by the beauty of former contestants of the SiTV show “Model Latina” season one . I had the opportunity to chat with them and see what they were up to nowadays! Miss Dominican Republic USA was also present supporting “Latin Trends Magazine” and the performers of the night were “Bachata Heights”. They had the entire Nightclub dancing to their beat .

The energy was great, a wide range of people attended and the re-launch party was a complete success! Mission Accomplished Latin Trends Magazine! We the En La Escena family support you & wish you many more successful years! Make sure to catch our coverage…Only on En La Escena!
