Lengaïa is a salsa band created officially in 2012 by the trombonist, and conductor Giany Huyghues Despointes. From their very beginning, the band’s principal goal is to reinterpret almost exclusively the salsa repertoire of the 70’s, which they rearrange, celebrate, while constantly innovating. With an energetic sound, and an important structure of 12 members, the formation’s musical pieces are rich, rapid, but also pretty complex. Since its creation, the band has participated to almost 40 concerts in the region of Montreal. In 2015, Lengaïa organized Salsa en La Calle, and Salsa en el Parque, two events that were both well received with more than 1000 participants each. Furthermore, every month at the Balcon Café Théâtre, the band is organizing different thematic evenings.
