2022 Luz de las Naciones


The “Luz de las Naciones” annual celebration of Latin American culture returned to the Conference Center in downtown Salt Lake City on November 5, 2022, after a two-year hiatus due to pandemic measures (virtual events were held in 2020 and 2021). Thousands of Latter-day Saints along the Wasatch Front attended the live event, which was recorded for on-demand viewing.

Originally broadcast in Spanish, the celebration hosted by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is available for on-demand viewing in Spanish. English and Portuguese versions with subtitles are also available.


The 2022 theme for ‘Luz de las Naciones’ is ‘Juntos es Mejor’ (Better Together). More than 500 musical artists filled the stage with songs and 11 dance performances from several Latin American countries, including the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Mexico and Cuba. Performers represent several countries, including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Peru.

“We bring that Latino feeling to feeling [God’s love] and it’s just a really enjoyable event,” said 17-year-old cast member Tonali Bruno. “Being able to dance the dances that bring me back to my Mexican roots is something that is really special because you don’t get it every day.”

Elder Ulisses Soares of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles participated in the live event on November 5.
