About Spanish Harlem Orchestra: Salsa Navidad
Spanish Harlem Orchestra brings its energy, hard-hitting rhythms, and musical precision to BroadStage with Salsa Navidad, a special holiday concert of American Christmas classics done in a Latin/Salsa style. Spanish Harlem Orchestra’s thirteen world-class musicians and vocalists come together to create an unparalleled musical experience featuring not only American Christmas classics done in a Latin/Salsa style, but also their non-holiday, original music for which they have become so well known. Salsa Navidad also features the Puerto Rican Christmas style known as “Aguinaldo,” which reflects the spirit and cultural essence of the Caribbean. Now celebrating 20 years of excellence, SHO, as they are known to fans, is dedicated to the sounds of the barrio (Spanish Harlem, NYC). With band leader Oscar Hernández, (considered one of the most prominent pianists and arrangers in the Salsa & Latin Jazz scene) at the helm, they are on a mission to keep the musical legacy of salsa dura (hard salsa) alive and expand its audience to those who love great music, not just Latin music. Grounded in the past, while focused on the future, they strive to keep the music relevant, creating a unique and fresh approach.
