Salseek: Salsation Comeback in South Africa


Musician, music producer and DJ, Fred Jacquier (DJ Fred Spider) arrived in Cape Town, South Africa in 2009 alone and with a suitcase. He didn’t know anyone. He did know that he had come to open his own club. He is now the host of Salsation, a Latin-infused music and dance party happening every Friday night at Cape Town's Grand Daddy Hotel, a quirky boutique hotel that has a rooftop airstream trailer park. Learn more about Spider, salsa in South Africa and the Grand Daddy Hotel in my article featured on Salseek, a digital magazine covering Latin dance and music from around the world: Salsation Comeback in South Africa.
