Now in their 14th year, Spanish Harlem Orchestra has become a driving force in preserving and cultivating authentic, New York-style, hard core salsa music. The 13-member ensemble, including both vocalists and instrumentalists, is known to astound and mesmerize audiences with their energy on stage. They have been nominated for four Grammy Awards® and won two – one for Best Salsa/Merengue Album, and the other for Best Tropical Latin Album. Under band leader Oscar Hernandez, the band strives to create an unparalleled musical experience steeped in the “hard salsa” tradition.
“They make you get up and dance, tap into the good-natured, communal spirit characteristic of salsa at its timeless best.”
