Lengaïa Salsa Brava

“This night was literally a storm in my life. I knew that I wanted to play salsa and pay my tribute to her every time I would be on a stage” (The Gazette, 2012). Celia Cruz triggered this desire felt by Gianny Huyghues-Despointes, the group’s musical director, to become a musician. A frequent winner in the Canada Latin Awards, the multicultural collective Lengaïa Salsa Brava, with plenty of lively brass, produces a composite of New York and Puerto Rican salsas, derived from mambo and cha-cha.
