Based in Galway, Ireland, Baile An Salsa brings together an international mix of world-class musicians to deliver a distinctive blend of Latin rhythms and traditional Irish Music - a fusion which they call "Salsa-Trad." The musicians seamlessly blend their influences from Latin American Afro Music and Irish Traditional to create a contemporary twist of original tunes and compositions. Vocals in English, Spanish and Irish meld with a vibrant combination of instruments, creating a full, rich sound.
Their positive message of diversity and unity contributes to their growing appeal. They have thrilled big crowds at concerts and festivals in Ireland and abroad, including the Kansas City Folk Fest, Kansas City Irish Fest, Galway Oyster Fest, Dublin's Temple Bar TradFest, Cork Gathering Festival, Galway Guinness Festival, and the well-established Philadelphia Folk Fest, where they had listeners dancing all the way up the hillside at the Main Stage.
Powerful and engaging, Baile An Salsa's energetic and entertaining stage performance makes it nearly impossible for their audience to stay in their seats!
Baile An Salsa launch their new album ÉRIU on February 10th. The new album was produced by 5 time Grammy Award winner, Walter Flores.
