Latin Explosion is a London-based Latin band bringing you a one-way ticket to the music of the Americas. The 12-piece lineup (2 vocalists, 3 percussionists, 4 brass, piano and bass) lends itself to an expansive big band sound without losing the dynamism and spark of a small group, and combines sensuous vocals, sophisticated horn lines and explosive percussion solos... With their vision to unite the rhythms of the Americas, their music is uplifting, inspiring and unifying, celebrating the diversity of cultures that arose out of the African Slave Trade, whilst focusing on the Cuban, Brazilian and globalised salsa sounds which have become significant musical languages and forms of solidarity and cultural exchange among communities throughout the world.
Latin Explosion is not your regular salsa band... it’s a Latin band, in the wider sense; freely mixing salsa with jazz, funk and contemporary popular music styles to create an explosive mix of sounds... it’s a big band by its very nature; equipped with all of the credentials to make for an exhilarating live outfit - engaging vocalists, a burning hot rhythm section and a big fat brass section... With their critically acclaimed fusion of rhythms, Latin Explosion is one of the most exciting new projects to emerge on the UK Latin scene today.

Please pass on my thanks to the band as they were fantastic. They brought a superb energy to the night and their performance was at an incredible standard. I particularly liked that they gave us a special Brazilian set list to stay true to the styles of Latin Music across Latin America. The band were well mannered and I really enjoyed chatting to them and getting to know them.
Latin Explosion were fantastic! They assisted with my set up queries promptly, professionally and even on the day helped me decide where best to place them. The act was lively and great fun and soon people were on the dance floor having a great time!

Thanks for your hard work to make our reception such a success - Tim & I loved every second and the band went down a storm… LATIN EXPLOSION pulled out all the stops to make our wedding reception the fun & energetic party we wanted. They appealed to our broad spectrum of guests with funky recognisable tunes including a Latin twist. From initial enquiry until the pack away the band were a pleasure to work with - all questions dealt with quickly and with a real desire that we should get exactly the wedding reception we wanted. I would not hesitate in recommending LATIN EXPLOSION - I had full confidence that they would be the perfect band, and in fact our expectations were exceeded. Thanks for making the day perfect - we fully intend to see you perform again:-)
