Baile An Salsa brings together an international mix of world-class musicians to deliver a distinctive blend of Latin rhythms and traditional Irish Music – a fusion which they call “Salsa-Trad.” The musicians seamlessly blend their influences from Latin America, Europe and the United States to create a contemporary twist on traditional tunes with original compositions. Vocals in English, Spanish and Irish, provided by the band’s founder, Andres Martorell, meld with the group’s vibrant combination of instruments, creating a full, rich sound that is fun and danceable.
Baile An Salsa have enjoyed popularity worldwide since forming in 2012 in Galway city. Their self-titled debut EP received airplay and rave reviews at home in Ireland and as far away as Poland, South America, Singapore and China (where their songs were played at Salsa Festivals). This success was quickly followed by a live appearance on The Late Late Show and the release of their first full length album, Tribú.
Their positive message of diversity and unity contributes to their growing appeal, which allows the band to perform at a variety of cultural gatherings. Powerful and engaging, Baile An Salsa’s energetic and entertaining stage performance makes it nearly impossible for their audience to stay in their seats!
