Event Navigation

Charanga Tropical is a nine-piece salsa ensemble that performs classic and modern Cuban music. The sound is harmonically rich and infectiously rhythmic, inspiring visions of mojitos and Caribbean sunsets. Featuring musicians from throughout the Americas, this band knows how to fill a dance floor and start a party! Using an instrumentation that dates back to the roots of Cuban music, Charanga Tropical blends the old with the new to create a sound that is classic yet modern. Music that is rich in harmony and melody, fantastic for listening and superb for dancing.

The repertoire of Charanga Tropical features rarely heard danzones and a spicy variety of son, salsa, cha cha cha, and timba. The members of the group include master musicians from Cuba, Brazil, Mexico, and the United States. Their collective accomplishments include tours to Asia, Europe, and South America, platinum recordings, master degrees, and multiple Latin Grammy nominations.
