The African Salsa Orchestra from Benin and Cuba led by Michel Pinheiro is a dancing machine that make you walk from Cotonou to Cuba. A journey in which the Manding rhythms, gospel, rhythm and blues and reggae associate with Cuban salsa. Salsa is a mixture of voodoo cults and Western music. Cubans have added piano and brass while the drum came from the Yorubas of Nigeria.
Michel Pinheiro sings in French, English, Spanish, Yoruba, Fon, Dioula. All on the devilishly danceable rhythms. He creates the explosive 10-piece African Salsa Orchestra in 2014 and tonight they make their UK debut with their infectious rhythms and blazing horns.
