Spanish Harlem Orchestra

Score: 0

In celebration of its fifteen-year anniversary, two-time Grammy Award–winning Spanish Harlem Orchestra (SHO) is proud to announce the release of its aptly titled sixth album, Anniversary, due out on April 16. On Anniversary, the powerhouse thirteen-piece, all-star salsa big band demonstrates why they are “the leading light of the salsa reconstruction movement” (Newsday) by doing what they do best: hard-hitting, no-holds-barred New York salsa that is both contemporary and reverent to its rich musical history.

Since its inception, SHO, under the direction of pianist, composer, and arranger Oscar Hernández, has earned its reputation as the true voice of the barrio with intricate arrangements and pulsating rhythms that are steeped in the authentic salsa tradition. Their high-energy performances have delighted audiences across the globe from Asia to Australia, from Latin America to Europe. Grounded in the past but with a focused eye on the future, SHO continues to play an integral role in ensuring salsa dura (“hard salsa”) is not just alive but a thriving musical force. Early and Late Show!
