Periko & Jessi Leon at Starbucks “Noches Cultures” featuring Caramel Flan Latte by Maria Serritella
Maria Serritella is a great friend of mine. She is a fashionista, actor, dancer, makeup artist, and mother that will be contributing to April Golightly. Check out and like her IMDB page and her makeup skills in this tutorial.
This week, I had the amazing opportunity to meet & interview the extremely talented & vibrant duo PERIKO & JESSI LEON at the Starbucks “Noches Culturales” in Miami, where customers were invited to celebrate culture, tradition, & the new Caramel Flan Latte accompanied with live acoustic music!
On this particular night of “Noches Culturales” we had something extra special to celebrate…it marked the 1-year anniversary of the duo together making latin pop rock music magic! Combined, their musical talents include composition, singing, & songwriting. Together they play guitar, ukulele, bass, & percussion instruments. Coming from successful solo careers, it was no surprise that their magical union occurred given the chemistry of the perfect blending of their voices. They have performed together in countless venues including The 14th Latin Grammy Street Party, Premios Lo Nuestro, Latin Billboard Showcase, Dewaristas con Juanes as Finalists, St. Jude Children’s Hospital Gala, Radio Amor 107.5, Lexus Listening Lounge, Univision, Showbiz (CNN), MegaTV, America TeVe, Sirius XM, MTV Tr3s, Telemundo, Telfutura, among others.
Their first EP contains the hit song “Me Vuelvo Loco”, a prime example of the magic of Periko & Jessi Leon. Hear for yourself the infectious sound & contagious melody as it lures you into the danceable rhythm:

During the evening I had the pleasure of speaking with Starbucks Manager, Max…who truly took this event “to the max”!…lol
He personally handed out samples of delicious hot caramel flan lattes, reminiscent of the delicious homemade creamy custard dessert made famous by most latin households :)) Only, the Starbucks latte version saves you the tons of sugar, calories, & fat also made popular by the re-known latin dessert :/
As well, the evening also included band interviews & audience participation by none other than EMMY award nominated TV host & producer, Pili Montilla! And, as you can see, I had an opportunity to be interviewed by her as well…yay!
Finally, I have to give thanks to the most amazing & efficient PR reps of Edelman, Rey & Alejandra, for whom without this team, we here at AprilGolightly would not have had the distinct pleasure of participating tonight…
