THE APPEAL OF LATIN MUSIC
So what is it that makes Tropical/Latin music such a different and interesting musical style, and so suitable for parties, events and celebrations? We think the secret is its power to transport the listener to an "exotic world". Described as attractive or striking because colourful or out of the ordinary, the exotic element of Tropical Music is obvious. All the musical styles in Latin America and the Caribbean originate from a rich mixture of African elements (Rhythm, instrumentation, believes, thematics) with indigenous (native people of the Americas before the European colonisation) and European elements (again, their own instrumentation, themes and styles).
For this year, 2023, we have produced a special video performance for Celebrating Sanctuary Birmingham: Bitesize Digital with Los Musicos.
To learn more about our music styles, you can check the BBC Bitesize about Latin Music.

Los Musicos London Latin Band kept going during the lockdown time across the UK. We collaborated remotely to produce amusing videos (covers and originals) of our Latin and salsa Music repertoire. Please visit our Facebook page to enjoy our collaboration videos. Browse our Instagram for our most recent entries about Latin and Salsa music performances across the United Kingdom and Europe.
Los Musicos Latin and Tropical band is versatile and can bring that special sparkle to a party or underline your aims when you are putting on a show, corporate event or Chilli Festival.
We have years of experience playing at weddings - during the reception, at drinks or when it is time for dancing the night away!. We can play as a duet, trio, quartet or five piece salsa band. The duo is ideal for that special touch of a "Serenata" (serenade) for your loved one. Traditionally the musicians arrive un-announced under the balcony of your dearest and play one or more "boleros".La Gloria Eres Tu (Famous 'bolero'. We are playing by the river Thames, London)
As a Latin Music duet, we can play a few tunes in a Gypsy Jazz Style. The 3, 4 or 5 piece provides a punchy sound that goes well as background music (during drinks at weddings) or as the main act in a World Music Festival.
Some of the Latin musical styles included in our extensive repertoire: Bolero, Son Cubano, Traditional and modern Cumbia, Peruvian Cumbia also known as Chicha or Psychedelic Cumbia, Merengue, Cha-cha-cha, Balada, Bossa nova, Tango, Rumba, Ranchera, Mexican Corrido. We do not dress as a Mariachi Band, but we play some of the Mariachi repertoire.
Also a few more traditional and less well known rhythms like the Colombian Currulao. Please contact us if you would like a comprehensive list of tunes or let us know if there is a song from the Latin American repertoire which you would like us to play at your event.
Please contact us with your requirements (the number of guests, venue size, type of occasion, date, etc) and we will tailor the appropriate Latin and tropical music service for you. We are based in London and Bristol but perform across the UK and Europe.
