Finally after concerts being postponed several times through the pandemic this top Cuban band will be here in London this summer!
Maykel Blanco and his Salsa Mayor spun their way into the Havana music scene fifteen years ago and remain the most popular live band in Cuba. Maykel combines catchy lyrics with irresistible dancefloor-ready arrangements to make his songs favourites among DJs and dancers.
Maykel Blanco was born in 1981 in Havana, and at the age of twelve, began to study percussion at night school and later on at the Amadeo Roldan Conservatory. He formed his own band at fifteen and then, in 2005, took over the musical direction of Salsa Mayor, which is known there as ‘The Music Machine of Cuba.’
Two recent huge hits Ya Tu No Coronas and Que Tiene Que Tu Mueve (the title track of the new album) reaching #1 in the charts of Cuba’s most important radio stations.
Javier La Rosa and Dr Jim head-up the Cuban DJ line-up for the night.
