REVIEW | Herman Olivera (NY) @ UK Festival de Orquestas

Check our video review from the 3rd festival de Orquestas in London by Ola Latina & Salsateca. Amazing weekend with 5 top bands on stage, dance shows and special show by big Star: ‘Hermán’ Olivera - “El Sonero del Siglo XXI”. Big up to the organizers for the hard work and continue supporting latin music live in London.

About Herman Olivera: Born and growing up in New Jersey with Puerto Rican parents, Olivera is considered to be one of the last true soneros – master vocalists of poetic improvisation in the Salsa style.

In a musical career spanning almost four decades and 50 albums garnering Grammy Awards, Herman Olivera has worked with an array of the Salsa greats. Olivera began his career with Manny Oquendo's ground-breaking "Conjunto Libre" in 1978, recording five albums and a string of hits. He went on to work with a roll call of legendary salsa artists and bands: Johnny Pacheco, Ray Barretto, Machito Orchestra, Bobby Rodriguez y La Compañia, Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Jimmy Bosch Orchestra and the Eddie Palmieri Orchestra where he is still lead singer after 20 years!
