The twelve-piece Columbian chart-toppers bring some salsa joy to the Barbican Music Stage.

Born in Bogota’s urban jungle and named after the street where the band is based, La-33 are a Colombian salsa band forged in a melting pot of influences from jazz to world to urban music. Originally formed by two brothers Sergio and Santiago, their fresh urban salsa remains a staple to the Colombian music scene as they have grown both in size and popularity, making waves internationally.

Referring to themselves as ‘the rockers of salsa’, the swing and sabor of their classical orchestration takes their music to new levels with their rock and roll attitude.
