This 12-piece orchestra, created in 2000 by the Puerto Rican pianist Oscar Hernandez, has given itself the mission of perpetuating the musical legacy of salsa, as it was performed in Manhattan’s Spanish Harlem, where many Puerto Rican emigrants have lived since the 1930s.
The group has won three Grammy awards for best salsa record in 2002, 2003 and 2005.
The Spanish Harlem Orchestra’s music is a fusion of Latin jazz and American pop and their arrival in France is an exceptional event.
