Northern Sky Choice: Musicport Launch
Widely regarded as the finest touring Salsa Orchestra Tromboranga is the pure essence of 'Salsa Dura' the salsa style developed in the 1970s with an emphasis on the instrumental part of the music (piano, bass, horns and percussion) over the lead vocals. Tromboranga's spicy ingredients are led by the trombones and strong percussion, creating a raw, strong and a very danceable sound. Tromboranga is made up of musicians from the Caribbean and Europe, all residents of Barcelona, Spain.
After six albums, Tromboranga are one of the most popular Salsa bands in the world circuit and they have truly become international, not only traveling in Europe, but touring in Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and recently conquering the USA. Their music is very popular with Salsa dance aficionados, as well as a growing Latino fan base in Latin America, the USA and the Latino diaspora .
There will be a big dancefloor on the night and special offers on festival tickets as well as the unveiling of the new Musicport graphic and poster design.
