Posted on: March 27, 2018


Tempe events feature New York City-based Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra (WSO), performing its innovative and modern sound at Tempe Center for the Arts (TCA) on March 30 at 7:30 p.m.

The Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra is an 11-piece salsa group that plays dynamic, dura arrangements of indie rock tunes. Their set list includes songs by Arcade Fire, TV On The Radio, Spoon, M83, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Black Keys and many more. The WSO has taken the typical salsa form and infused it with a completely modern identity. Its explosive arrangements have established the band as a groundbreaking force in the New York underground, and has led to international acclaim for its completely new approach to the genre.

With the attitude of a rock band, the Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra is redefining traditional salsa for a new generation and audiences around the globe. Led by percussionist/arranger Gianni Mano (from the Latin-funk legends Radio Mundial), and fronted by Argentinian vocalist Solange Prat, the WSO has found an audience among new and classic salsa lovers, quickly becoming one of the most popular bands in New York City.

If you love to salsa dance or want to learn, a free dance lesson will be offered before the show from 6-6:30 p.m. in the main TCA lobby.
