Passport Series: Lengaïa Salsa Brava

Friday, October 20, 2023

Lengaïa Salsa Brava is a 12-piece multi-awarded and Juno-nominated Canadian orchestra based in Montreal and created in 2012 by French Guyanese trombone player Giany Huyghues- Despointes. As its hometown, the orchestra is multicultural and represents 8 different nationalities: Colombia, French Guyana, Venezuela, Peru, Quebec, Cuba, Spain and Dominican Republic. Lengaïa has collaborated with several international artists from the world of salsa such as Ismael Miranda, Ismael Rivera Jr and Jimmy Bosch.

Their motto: “La salsa dura de siempre con el sabor de ahora” is what defines their musical proposal. The orchestration of 3 trombones and a baritone saxophone gives an aggressive and powerful identity to their music. Constancy and professionalism govern their work. Lengaïa Salsa Brava maintains the heritage of the 70s’ New York salsa style with original and innovative songs.
