The instant Latin house party…
FIESTA LATINA recreates the sizzling, scorching sounds of Latin America and the Caribbean with an uplifting sound which is inspiring and unifying, mixing salsa with other influences to bring you a fresh, funky and instant Latin house party experience. With its compact 2–4 piece line-up of vocals, piano, percussion and trumpet, FIESTA LATINA distils a vibrant + stylish mix of salsa, funk, soul and samba, from Cuban classics and laid back Brazilian beats right through to the present day.
FIESTA LATINA is the smaller sister act and “instant coffee” alternative to the filtered coffee beans of its big brother DIÁSPORA, each of the musicians taking the lead with their respective elements – the rhythms of the percussion, the harmonies of the piano, the melodies of the trumpet and the lyrics of the vocals – creating an explosive spark of musical interplay, with an emphasis on live dynamic interaction. Providing a quick and easy salsa solution, the band have been a favourite with house parties, product launches and promotional and media work as well as weddings and intimate occasions around the UK. The band has performed throughout the UK – London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Plymouth, Reading, Oxford and the home counties – working with distinguished clients such as Havana Club and notable bar & pub chains.
FIESTA LATINA is based in London, but performs regularly around the UK, and even offers discounts with Bristol and Manchester-based lineups for gigs in South West England and Wales, and North England and Scotland.
