Salseros is a Brisbane-based salsa ensemble who perform energetic Afro-Cuban dance music. This fiery nine-piece salsa ensemble delights Spanish and English listeners by performing South American classics, jazz standards and pop songs with a salsa twist. Salseros can captivate crowds of any size whether the setting is intimate or festive. Hot off the heels from their successful premiere show in the Griffith University Queensland Conservatorium Lounge Series, the ensemble is now an artist residency at Currumbin RSL on the 3rd Saturday of every month from November. They make music that gets you dancing to the irresistible rhythm of salsa!
Members of the ensemble all studied at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University and have, on average, 10 years of individual performance experience across a range of musical styles and instruments. The ensemble is led by Hong Kong-Australian percussionist Joe Chow, who has studied with internationally renowned Afro-Cuban percussionist Gustavo Cereijo to bring an authentic experience to the band’s performances.
For Saturday’s performance we’ll also have 4 authentic Peruvian brothers performing authentic Merenge and Bachata music with Salseros to keep you on the dance floor!
