La Maquina de la Salsa (with tribute to Billy Bryans)


La Maquina de la Salsa is led by Marta Elena, a talented Cuban songstress from Havana who used to sing in Anacaona. In La Maquina de la Salsa she sings with other vocalists backed by a 12-piece orchestra (directed by gifted Cuban pianist, Larry Mesa Benitez) that play mostly hardcore salsa numbers.

La Maquina and Harbourfront Centre will honour the late Billy Bryans - founding member of The Parachute Club,  juror on the inaugural SoundClash Music Award in 2011, and DJ/promoter - whose interactions with both Harbourfront Centre and the local Cuban music scene will be missed. It's time to "Rise Up" and dance for Billy!
