Salsa Celtica are celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2020 – a remarkable journey which has taken them from the village halls of Scotland to some of the most prestigious venues and festivals around the globe. Their unique synthesis of Latin American Salsa with Scottish and Irish music produces an irresistible mix of passion, energy and joy, making them one of the most exciting live acts touring today.
From appearing at the Lincoln Centre in New York to sell out shows in Colombia, headlining international Celtic, world and jazz music festivals and celebrating hit salsa records in Latin America, Salsa Celtica’s 25 year career is an incredible story of success and adventure.
To mark this landmark year, Salsa Celtica will be appearing at some favourite festivals, returning to play in Colombia, and will release 2 compilation albums of their music spanning 25 years of recording.
Salsa Celtica are an 11 piece band featuring musicians from Scotland, Ireland, Venezuela and Cuba, as the name suggests the band’s musical DNA is a mix of Celtic and salsa. The combined depth of rhythm and melodies these two cultures provide make Salsa Celtica an irresistible force of passion, energy and joy.
