ORQUESTA MERCADONEGRO - Brazil, Cuba, Peru, Col

ORQUESTA MERCADONEGRO - Brazil, Cuba, Peru, Col

Location: Promenade

The Mercadonegro Orchestra represents the new salsa wave. Their hit Mercadonegro llegò – the first track on their debut album, Bailalo! soon became a number one in the latino DJ charts and on the dance floors, keeping the spot for many months in a row.

The members of the extensive group are South-American immigrants, settled in Europe, and the group's name betrays it's African roots. Their style is not the pure salsa that they learned from maestros like the violinist Alfredo de la Fé or Celia Cruz, the queen of the genre, whom they accompanied on the stages of various tours. It is a fresh style, a new vision that encompasses the immigration issue, integration into the Western and universal culture. The Mercadonegro Orchestra is beloved by Salsa dancers for its unique Salsa Dura style and has been invited to perform at the most important Latina, Salsa and World music festivals worldwide. The Mercadonegro Orchestra has just recorded its third album, which is creating great excitement among the Salsa lovers and dancers, and will be presented by Bibomusic during the summer of 2015.
