Following their breakup in March, members of Orquesta de la Luz, a Japanese salsa band that has gained unprecedented fame overseas, reunited earlier this week to enjoy their last moments of glory together at home.

Some 2,000 fans, including Latin Americans from Bolivia, Costa Rica, Colombia, Cuba, Peru and Puerto Rico, gathered to see the celebrated 12-piece band perform at its final concert in Tokyo.
