Tribute to Joe Arroyo et Angel Canales
LEGENDS OF SALSA WITH LENGAÏA
April 19, 2018
Colombian salsa icon Joe Arroyo was instrumental in bringing his country’s genre of salsa to the international stage. He was the lead singer for the legendary band Fruko y sus Tesos, and rose to fame with hits such as “La Rebelión,” “La Noche,” “En Barranquilla Me Quedo” and “Tania,” now considered salsa classics.
Meanwhile, Angel “El Diferente” Canales is a true maverick of salsa dura. A native of Puerto Rico who grew up in New York City, he forged his own style of salsa by self-producing and self-financing his music, which allowed him full freedom to develop his remarkable creative vision. Canales’ work is a powerful combination of bomba, salsa dura and jazz, with bold horns and resonant baritone saxophone.
The show takes place at the Balcon Cabaret Music-Hall.
