“This band reminds you of the excitement that is central to the salsa orchestra … in
intricacies of percussion and the breadth of Oscar Hernandez’s arrangements.”
– The New York Times
Get ready for the forceful, feisty sounds of New York City salsa with this all-star, award-winning lineup. The recipient of multiple Grammy Awards and Billboard Latin Music Awards, the Spanish Harlem Orchestra is one of the hottest Latin dance ensembles around!
Since arriving on the scene in 2000, the exuberant 13-member ensemble has been led by the exceptional Oscar Hernández, who has enjoyed a prolific career as musician, director and arranger with such luminaries as Tito Puente, Julio Iglesias, Celia Cruz and Paul Simon. Filled with powerful salsa instrumentals and spirited vocals, Spanish Harlem Orchestra’s appearance as part of LIVE! at StarScape will leave the audience fired up and on its feet.
