FEATURING ALTERNATIVE URBAN MUSIC
with ANDY RUBAL & LENGAÏA SALSA BRAVA
Esmeralda ✦ Noderlys ✦ Stéphanie Osorio (Bumaranga) ✦ DJ Zarah Kali
Andy Rubal, originally from Cuba, is a well-known pianist, singer and arranger for such artists as Raul Paz and Orlando Valle “Maraca.” He released his debut album El que Busca Encuentra in 2016 on the distinguished Cuban recording label Egrem (Buena Vista Social Club), earning him a nomination for the Cubadisco Awards 2017 in the category Best Salsa Album by a New Artist.
LENGAÏA SALSA BRAVA
The evening will culminate in the 1970s New York salsa tradition with the blaring brass and fascinating rhythms of the huge multi-ethnic group Lengaïa Salsa Brava, under the baton of Guyanese trombone player Giany-Frantz Huyghues-Despointes. The band has performed alongside Ismael Miranda, Ismael Rivera Jr. and Yoko Mimata, and took Salsa Group of the Year in 2017 and 2018 at the Latin Awards Canada. They were also nominated for a 2021 Juno Award for their latest album The Gold Diggers, featuring trombonist Jimmy Bosch.
Two sets, guest artists and performances
Each evening, NORTÉ TROPICAL will present a double bill with no headliners: two bands and their guest artists merging on stage at the end of the evening creating a unique performance experience for the audience’s pleasure. Interludes between sets will be hosted by a Latina guest DJ.
