Salsa Dura Dance Party with La Excelencia
November 5, 2011
La Excelencia plays hard-hitting salsa of the Fania Records old school variety -- but this is not your grandpa's salsa band.: Theirinfectious energy and gusto that has been lighting up dance floors from Lincoln Center to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival to Belgium’s Afro-Latino Festival. The band brings a new hip, young outlook to salsa music by writing about social issues -- breaking the mold without losing the true roots of salsa. The hard life of the barrio is reflected in La Excelencia music through their hardcore salsa sounds known as “salsa dura”.
