Electronic rhythms, the screening of images within a 380m2 structure, the participation of renowned German DJs and the mixes of national DJs will be part of the creative elements of today's concert, named "Bonanza Electrónica". The city of Managua will be the headquarters of the event, which will start at 8:00 pm and will cost C$100.

Ricardo González Mejía, director of MGA-LAB, Nicaraguan company that is producing the event, explained that they aim to show national and international attendees a series of cultural, natural and human resources that can be mixed to accomplish a cultural and existential growth.

Joanne Morrison, member of the German Cultural Initiative in Nicaragua (ICAN), stated that the concert is part of the artistic activity program that ICAN promotes annually. "This is the second time that we bring an electronic show to Nicaragua," she said.

Furthermore, Morrison declared that the German DJs - Fabian Stall (known as Zero Cash) and Maral Almassi - were first contacted by the Goethe Institute of Mexico, so they could be part of a tour around Central America and the Caribbean. The institute promotes this kind of events in Latin America and worked together with ICAN to organizer tonight's concert.
