W Salsa Orchestra

W Salsa Orchestra

The W Salsa Orchestra is a stunning 11 piece band which forgoes the standard repertoire of vintage salsa covers and sound-alike originals, instead of playing dynamic, dura arrangements of indie rock tunes we love. No bananas in the hair; this is an innovative, astonishing salsa with a new, vibrant aesthetic.

With an ever evolving set list that includes songs by Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, Animal Collective, the Black Keys, Spoon and many more, the W Salsa Orchestra has taken the typical salsa form and infused it with a completely modern identity. The explosive arrangements have established the band as a groundbreaking force in the New York underground and have led to a high-profile open-ended residency at the Brooklyn bowl, as well as legendary salsa venue S.O.B.’s, bringing the big band sound back after decades of absence.
