Charanga Tropical is an authentic Cuban 'charanga' featuring three violins, flute, vocals, and a sizzling Latin rhythm section. The sound is rich in harmony and melody, fantastic for listening and superb for dancing.
The ensemble is the only American group to ever perform in Cuba at the prestigious International Danzón Festival. As part of that tour to the island Charanga Tropical recorded its latest CD at the same Havana studios where the Buena Vista Social Club album was made.
Founded in 2006, Charanga Tropical has performed at many major venues, festivals, and galas. Since 2019 the ensemble has collaborated with one of the true stars of Cuban music- singer, composer, and Grammy winner Mayito Rivera.
