Founded by veteran pianist Oscar Hernández and dedicated to the classic, dance-inducing New York City salsa dura sound, the 3-time Grammy-winning Spanish Harlem Orchestra sets the gold standard for excellence in authentic New York style salsa. Their energy on stage, rich sound, and musical precision leave audiences mesmerized until the last note is played. With an unwavering respect for the music’s storied history, the ensemble’s thirteen world-class musicians and vocalists come together to spark a holiday conflagration with salsa-fied holiday standards and patented rhythmic panache.

From the first downbeat, the performance delivers a welcome kinetic jolt, with the churn of a world-class rhythm section.
