New Spanish Harlem Orchestra album


Released yesterday and available to buy now.. a new album from one of the most popular working bands in the Salsa world today... The Spanish Harlem Orchestra.

Currently blasting out of the speakers at Abanico HQ this one has some great stuff and more of what you would expect from this band - a big sound from a band that is tight and together... plenty of Salsa that will go down great on the dance floor and a couple of great Cha Cha tracks - there's even a track sung in English for those of you that like that!

Timing & musicality playlist


As promised folks here is a playlist of songs I used at the MOOSE SALSA "Timing & Musicality" workshop on Sat 26th July.

The list includes tracks in which you can hear the following instruments the we focussed on 

Cuban Fury


Not long to go until the film "Cuban Fury" hits the cinemas across the UK.  We were lucky enough to catch a preview last year and are very happy to say that it is great!  Don't miss it folks - catch Nick Frost and a host of UK Salsa dancers (including Susana Montero who has a speaking part!) on Valentine's Day to see what it's all about.
