“¡Esto es Son Real!”  - This is Son Real – THE REAL DEAL!

Son real is one of London’s most innovative and contemporary Latin bands around today. Created in January 2006, Son Real aims to create a fresh sound representative of the UK’s love affair with the “Latin spirit”.

Musically, Son Real orchestra is collaboration between British and Colombian musicians. Their style is modern yet remains true to traditional tropical roots: Salsa in all of its variations, traditional folk rhythms like cumbia and plena, the infectious sounds of merengue and urban Latin beats like reggeatton.

Son Real’s 7-14 piece bands are comprised of a Latin Rhythms section: piano, bass and traditional Latin percussion and the all important brass section. Vocally it is fronted by three female vocalists, engaging audiences with their own unique vocal styling and harmonies, as well as vibrant and dynamic stage performances. Their presence on the scene offers a much needed female perspective in Latin music today.

Son Real has had the pleasure of performing at Europe’s biggest Latin American festival held over the summer in London ‘Carnaval del Pueblo’, ‘West End Live’ and the British Grand Prix. Son Real also performs at the many ‘Salsa nights’ held around the UK such as ‘Strictly Salsa UK’. The band has performed at various corporate functions for companies such as Tesco, B.T. and Iberia and diplomatic receptions (Mexican Embassy). Son Real has also had the pleasure of being invited to represent Colombia in the annual ‘World Cultures Festival’ held in Fuenjirola (Spain).

Son Real’s charm can undoubtedly be found in its enthralling rhythms which capture every listener leaving them yearning for more.

Thank you for the salsa band in Cornwall. They were fantastic and we had such a wonderful day and evening.


Son Real has toured France, Italy, Spain, and Tunisia and the band has performed for personalities such as Prince Charles, for musicians such as, Elton John, Eric Clapton, and for stars of film and television including Joan Collins and Roger Moore. The act has also become a spicy ingredient at hotels, clubs and many pop stars’ parties. Son Real is a very well known band in the United Kingdom spreading the Latin fever from small to big audiences. They have been invited to appear at El Carnaval del Pueblo Festival, The Barbican Centre, The South Bank and The Edinburgh festival plus several TV shows.

Son Real is available in many guises and are able to augment to a 14 piece if required, and to give the WOW factor to any event!
