Salerosa – The Cuban Fusion Project
Salerosa are an explosive Afro Cuban Latin Jazz 7-piece band.
Salsa and Latin jazz favourites, original compositions, and popular chart topping songs are fused with pulsating Afro-Cuban rhythms to create an exhilarating performance. Salerosa’s drummer Chris Sykes has fashioned distinctive arrangements that blend creative bass, strong vocals and red hot vibes brought to you by an exceptional band.
One of the UK’s most exciting new talents, Sulene Fleming fronts Salerosa with her faultless vocal delivery and mesmerising stage presence. Pianist Andrzej Baranek, featured in Jazzwise magazine’s “Who to look out for” series for his “nimble piano work”, is joined by Richard Hammond (bass), Pete Williams (congas), Jonny Enright (trombone), Howard Jacobs (sax, bass clarinet & percussion) and Chris Sykes (drums & percussion).
Salerosa’s live gig promotes their fantastic debut album featuring tracks including I Put A Spell On You by Screaming Jay Hawkins, In My Time Of Dying by Blind Willie Johnson & Naima by john Coltrane.
