Στον ρυθμό έβαλαν η Συμφωνική Ορχήστρα Κύπρου και τα παιδιά του Sistema Cyprus το κοινό, ενώνοντας τις δυνάμεις τους με μια διπλή συναυλία στο Δημοτικό Θέατρο Στροβόλου, το Σάββατο 9 Μαρτίου. Φιλοξενούμενος μαέστρος της εκδήλωσης ήταν ο Gerardo Estrada Martinez που παρέσυρε κοινό και μουσικούς στον ρυθμό του.

Την παράσταση έκλεψαν τα παιδιά του Sistema Cyprus τα οποία εισέπραξαν το πιο ζεστό χειροκρότημα του κοινού, με το που έκαναν την εμφάνισή τους στη σκηνή. Με το τέλος των παραστάσεων, δέχτηκαν επίσης την απόλυτη αποθέωση από τους θεατές, που τους χάρισαν ένα τεταμένο δυνατό χειροκρότημα. Δέστε απόσπασμα από την βραδιά στον πιο κάτω σύνδεσμο.
