Salsa Celtica

El Agua De La Vida

2006-04-05

Salsa Celtica is a solid, hard-swinging salsa band that just happens to be from Scotland. Their recordings have incorporated elements of Celtic music (both Scottish and Irish), and they have employed some instruments that are typically heard on traditional Celtic recordings (including bagpipes, Uillean pipes, banjos, fiddles and whistles). But the instruments that really do the most to define their sound--Latin percussion, piano, horns--are standard salsa/Afro-Cuban instruments. -AMG
