About Bacalao

From their beginnings in Brighton, Bacalao have developed into one of the biggest and most colourful Latin show bands in the country. The line up consists of many of the most exciting and talented players in the UK Latin music scene. Much hard work has been put into creating an authentic 'latin/salsa' sound. There are two genuine 'Latinos' in the band, Diego and Juan who share lead vocals. Both hail from Colombia in South America and the rest are from the UK. Many of the members have, however, journeyed to Cuba, the birthplace of Salsa, and studied and played with some of the best bands and musicians. The aim of the band is essentially to make people dance, young and old. We also feel like we want to give back something to the culture that gave us the opportunity to make this beautiful music. Our own interpretation of classics might be given a 'western' twist for example by mixing Cha Cha Cha with Ska. A combination that purists might disapprove of, but will fill any dance floor. The musicians in the band come from a wide range of musical backgrounds, ranging from Klezmer to Jazz, Pop to Punk and Classical to Reggae. This unique combination has resulted in the band presently creating some of the most danceable sounds around. Bacalao, the UK salsa big band, Sabor!
