2020-2021 RECORDINGS

Hello everyone, I hope you are safe and healthy. The ensemble was unable to perform live during the 2020-2021 academic year due to COVID, but that doesn't mean we stopped making music! Check out our recordings for the year on Soundcloud. The songs encompass traditional salsa, rumba, latin jazz, danzon, and cha-cha. We sincerely hope you enjoy the music, and we appreciate your continued support. All of our fantastic musicians are showcased throughout the pieces. We are looking forward to performing live for everyone in the near future!
