Featured in BBC Music Clips


Salsa Celtica’s synthesis of Afro Latin Salsa with Scottish and Irish traditional music has taken the band and its music on a remarkable journey, from the village halls of Scotland to music festivals around the globe. A potent blend of virtuosity and energy, Salsa Celtica is a respected force on the world music circuit. 2014 is shaping up to be an exciting new chapter in the band’s story, with a new studio album, The Tall Islands, a return to Celtic Connections, a UK tour and a debut performance in Colombia – yet another landmark for the Scottish salsa band that made it big in Latin America. .
