Salsa music is exemplary of all things Cuban, in the sense it is warm, sensual and easygoing. Use the conga, horns and cowbell rhythms to take your hips for a journey. Just as molasses is transformed into rum, one of the oldest spirits of the world, Melao de Cuba transforms elements of Afro-Cuban and Spanish music into vibrant, danceable music that lifts your spirit and brings joy to your heart.
Solid Salsa inspired beats with Afro-Cuban Rhythms that makes the audience get up and dance! Includes dance lesson and live salsa orchestra.
Melao de Cuba has a fresh sound with the recent addition of Sammy’s electric guitar! Santana has nothing on us!
Melao de Cuba 100% Salsa Orchestra is a salsa band with a fierce horns section!!
