‘A purely hedonistic experience: it is the sound of pleasure.’

About

Embodying the very essence of salsa, this electrifying nine-piece orchestra combines funk, hip hop and the salsa of 1970s New York with percussive Latin beats.

La Mambanegra ooze sensuality and joy with their sophisticated instrumentation, spicy rhythms and a pulsing energy that will inspire you to burn the floor. Their polyrhythmic, horn-heavy and thoroughly modern sound has quickly earned them a following across South America and beyond.

As innovative as their records are, they’re even better live – and their full-throttle shows overflow with the energy of each band member. Band leader Jacob Velez believes the band inhabit a genre of their own, which he calls ‘break salsa’ – a musical life force described by him as ‘the gasoline that turns my heart on.’
