Meet London's Son Real Orchestra

Son Real is one of the UK's most innovative and contemporary Latin bands around today. Created in January 2006 by Latin Touch Entertainments, Son Real aims to create a fresh sound representative of the UK's love affair with the "Latin spirit".

Musically Son Real orchestra is collaboration between British and Colombian musicians. Son Real's style is modern yet remains true to traditional tropical roots: Salsa in all of its variations, traditional folk rhythms like cumbia and plena, the infectious sounds of merengue and urban Latin beats like reggaeatton.

Son Real's 7-14 piece bands are comprised of a Latin Rhythms section: piano, bass and traditional Latin percussion and the all important brass section. Vocally it is fronted by three female vocalists, engaging audiences with their own unique vocal stylings, harmonies as well as vibrant and dynamic stage performances. Their presence on the scene offers a much needed female perspective in Latin music today. 

Son Real has had the pleasure of performing at Europe's biggest Latin American festival held over the summer in London "Carnaval del Pueblo", "West End Live" and the British Grand Prix. Son Real also perform at the many Salsa nights held around the UK such as "Strictly Salsa UK". The band has performed at various corporate functions for companies such as Tesco, B.T. and Iberia and diplomatic receptions (Mexican Embassy). Son Real has also had the pleasure of being invited to represent Colombia in the annual "World Cultures Festival" held in Fuenjirola (Spain).

Son Real's charm can undoubtedly be found in its enthralling rhythms which capture every listener leaving them yearning for more.
