Latino Timba are an authentic Cuban Son, Salsa, and Latin Jazz Band, based in London
Latino are usually a five piece band who play Cuban Son and Salsa with a serious groove. Pianist Sara McGuinness sought out musicians with a passion for Cuban music old and new to form the band. The result is a powerful quintet with a far bigger sound.
The band's obvious love of the music they play is evident in the passionate and exuberant arrangements of Cuban songs both classic and modern. The fabulous singer Yuri Moreno hails from "Oriente" the East of Cuba where "Son" music was born. Bass player Elpidio Caicedo is well known on the UK Salsa scene, considered one of the top bass players he is also much in demand for his fantastic vocal talents.
The band play a range of Cuban music including "Son" from the 40s and 50s, as popularised by Buena Vista Social Club, through to modern day hot Timba and Salsa. Perfect music for a summer's day, don't forget your dancing shoes.
BAND LINE-UP Vocals, Bass, Piano, Bongos/Timbales and Congas.
They recently promoted the launch of the Cuban movie "7 Days in Havana" playing in the middle of Leicester Square, London.
I just wanted to send a follow up email to thank Latino Timba band so much for coming to perform at our event on Wednesday evening. I have received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from everybody on the event and their playing, which was a beautiful accompaniment to the surroundings and suited the drinks reception perfectly. A number of people have said how much they enjoyed the music and wanted me to pass on their compliments and thanks. I will certainly keep you in mind for any future events I am organising and hope to book them again soon.Laura Chandler | Morgan Stanley
