La Bamba! tells the heartwarming tale of Sofia (Inês Fernandez), a young woman from Los Angeles with dreams of stardom.

Inspired by her musical idols and supported by her family and best friend Mateo (Siva Kaneswaran), Sofia learns that while talent can make you a star, destiny can make you a legend.

Written by Paul Morrissey, directed by the acclaimed American director Ray Roderick, and featuring choreography by Graziano Di Prima and Erica Da Silva, with associate choreography by Giada Lini, La Bamba! showcases a wide range of Latin music styles, from traditional folk tunes to contemporary chart-topping hits. The musical arrangements are masterfully crafted by the award-winning musical maestro, Alfonso Casado-Trigo.
