Music on Main: Melao De Cuba

Melao de Cuba Salsa Orchestra - World Beat Festival, Salem 2016

Salsa music is exemplary of all things Cuban, in the sense it is warm, sensual and easygoing. Use the conga, horns and cowbell rhythms to take your hips for a journey. Just as molasses is transformed into rum, one of the oldest spirits of the world, Melao de Cuba transforms elements of Afro-Cuban and Spanish music into vibrant, danceable music that lifts your spirit and brings joy to your heart.
