Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra
Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra


The Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra is a stunning 11-piece Latin band which plays dynamic, dura arrangements of indie rock tunes we love, taking the art of salsa to new places while remaining within the classic, deeply funky tradition. Songs by Arcade Fire, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on The Radio, Santigold, Animal Collective, and many more are transformed into astonishing salsa anthems for a new generation. The WSO released its Debut Album in 2011 and has garnered international praise and recognition, making many "Best of The Year" lists and establishing the band as a groundbreaking global voice by infusing the typical salsa form with a completely modern identity.

Led by percussionist/arranger Gianni Mano, (from the Latin-funk legends Radio Mundial), the WSO contains some of the best young players on the scene including a full compliment of horns and percussion. With the attitude of a rock band, and the grooves of classic New York salsa, the Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra is redefining salsa for a new decade and resetting the boundaries of the art form.

La Mecánica Popular
La Mecánica Popular
La Mecánica Popular is a Brooklyn-based experimental afro-Latin group led by Efraín Rozas. Their sound is steeped in the roots of 1970’s-era Salsa Dura, yet incorporates a heavy dose of modern gadgets – a unique blend of processed Peruvian-style guitar licks & experimental synths, sounds and textures. They have played at the Fania records 50th anniversary in Central Park Summerstage, featured in CNN, BBC, and named one of the top 3 Latin acts in the U.S by Juanes. Their 2nd album, ROZA CRUZ, was just released on Brooklyn label Names You Can Trust.
