La LUCHA Presents India

Just when you thought Rick Ross and Ludacris were the biggest things to hit Syracuse University this February, La L.U.C.H.A blows it up again by bringing to SU the one, the only, PRINCESA DE SALSA (Princess of Salsa), INDIA.

Come out on February 17th and enjoy a night of music and dance unlike any other.
