Dorance Lorza & Sexteto Cafe have been one of the leading bands in the vibrant and exciting London salsa scene for almost 20 years. Pioneering the worldwide “salsa con vibes” revival of the late 1990s, they were one of the first bands in Europe to favour the small combo salsa sound of 1960s/70s bands like Joe Cuba Sextet and the New Swing Sextet rather than that of the big brass-heavy salsa orchestras of the day. Colombian born band leader Dorance Lorza already boasted an impressive record as a musician, arranger, composer and producer, having worked with the the biggest names in Colombian salsa music.
"Dorance Lorza and Sexteto Cafe typify the globalization of salsa's new world order" *Andy Harlow (WDNA) Miami USA
Nirk Molina "UK's King of Vallenato" one of the shining lights of the Colombian/cumbia and vallenato London scene. Playing in many of the established London tropical bands he has now put his own outfit together playing a mix of folkloric cumbia and Vallenato cumbia classics and his own compositions.Nirk Molina with his fusion of pop vocals and traditional Colombian vallenato the traditional music of the Colombian rural people. He embodies the very soul of Latin America Vallenato, which originated in the Valle de Upar in northeastern Colombia, has roots in African, European, and native Colombian music. It uses native bamboo flutes, African-inspired drums, and German accordions. For many years the music was looked down upon in Colombia because it was associated with poor people and minority groups.However, Molina and other artists have brought it into the mainstream and have also introduced it to audiences around the world. Molina and vallenato' s mix of cultures is the living proof of the equality of all people."
