Rumba Caliente

What's the best way to dance at a Rumba Caliente gig? Their globe-trotter sound fuses salsa, jazz, ragga and rumba so your hips won't know what to do with themselves next. The eight-piece is led by Salsa Celtica's Toby Shippey, with musicians from Venezuela, Cuba and New York adding extra heat to the mix.

Rumba Caliente International Big Band

Pulsing, rhythmic excitement from this specially assembled Latin jazz monster band led by Salsa Celtica's Toby Shippey and Ricardo Fernandez Pompa on lead vocals. Heavy hitting salsa and fiery mambo sit alongside soul, Latin-jazz, funk, raga and of course upbeat rumba. Plus top salsa DJs.
