Latin Salsa bands for all types of occasions, from corporate functions to weddings and other private events...
Flexible sized band 4 - 7 musicians offering 2 x 50 minute sets. This Latin Salsa / Latin Jazz Band has become one of the sought after Salsa dance and Latin jazz bands on the London and UK scene today. The musicians came together in 1999, inspired by traditional Cuban music in the Son style - the roots of Salsa. Merging their own unique styles of performance, the group created its own sound that combines the rhythms of Latin America with European harmony and the virtuosity of jazz. A combination which has resulted in compelling music for dancing and the concert stage. Their musicians, who are from Europe and Latin America, have had an eclectic musical training with professional experiences to match, encompassing: Latin American, jazz, pop and classical music. As individuals this has led them to perform on tours in the UK and around the world with artists such as: Björk, Ricky Martin, The Ghana Dance Ensemble, Stewart Copeland (The Police), Ravi Shankar and at venues which include: Pizza on the Park, The 606 Club, The Royal Festival Hall, Glastonbury Festival, The Sydney Festival (Australia) and The National Theatres (London and Ghana).
