The show include some of London greatest bands playing Boogaloo, Classic Salsa, Salsa Dura and Salsa Brava bands paying tribute to the sound of Colombian Salsa, NYC’s Palladium and Fania eras. The bands plays fun, powerful and energetic salsa . This classic sound is more a tribute to older styles, like Salsa Dura, Salsa brava to heat the dance floor which features fat, brass-heavy compositions characterized by multiple percussive elements and a less romanticized, powerful, fast style.

Salsa emerged in the 1970s from a conglomeration of many earlier Latino musical styles and rhythms. The appreciation of Latino music in Cali extends back to the 1940s when the first radio stations broadcast music from Havana; when musicals from Mexico’s golden era of cinema (with Cuban swing bands and singers) were broadcast on local TV in the 50s; and with the arrival, also around that time, of records from Cuba, Panama and Argentina.

Time stands still in Cali. A wide variety of genres of Latino music – dating from the 30s up until the 80s – have been preserved in the discotecas and viejotecas(“old libraries”), which are like musical time capsules, with the original records, turntables, posters and photos creating an authentic setting for listening and dancing to the sounds of eras past.
