Chicago Latin Band 1

This Chicago Latin Band represents a convergence of professional musicians who have been active in the Chicago music scene for more than 25 years.  They bring together expansive musical training and ideas from diverse sources that include Cuban music, Puerto Rican styled salsa, jazz, rock, rhythm and blues, classical, Puerto Rican folkloric, and big band music.  In addition, the use of the Charanga and Pachanga styles are incorporated in their music – be it Merengue, Salsa, Mambo, Cha Cha, Latin Jazz or Montuno.

The orchestra was originally formed in 1998 as a group that played only “folkloric” Puerto Rican music.  As time passed the group expanded, as did their repertoire.  It was during the group’s formation in the first year the name of the group was carefully chosen.  The name was chosen to reflect the musical background of the musicians, and the variety of music they played.
