    Background: MANAGUA, NICARAGUA

    The Nicaraguan government has hosted the first Festival of Latin American and Caribbean Music, presenting over forty bands from twelve countries in music from all the Americas. The festival, opened by Nicaragua's Culture Minister Ernesto Cardenal in Managua on August 22, played to an audience of an estimated one hundred thousand people, and was scheduled to last until August 26. After a spectacular fireworks display which highlighted the opening ceremony, Cuban, Nicaraguan and Venezuelan groups played to the highly enthusiastic public, many of whom began dancing to the pulsating rhythms of the bands. The Nicaraguan group played the tune "Sincerity", followed by a Cuban band - "Son 14" playing "salsa" music. A group from Guyana also took part in the first day's events.
