Join us as we welcome Tumbao Social to the West for salsa Nights!

On an island continent tens of thousands of miles from the music’s birthplace; Melbourne-based Salsa & Latin Jazz orchestra TUMBAO SOCIAL, a robust, charismatic 11-piece ensemble with an atypical horn lineup alongside the classic salsa rhythm section was conceived with several ambitious goals in mind. To create world-class music, to pay homage to the elegant latin dance & salsa romantica orchestras of 80’s and 90’s Puerto Rico & Colombia and to bestow swingin’ rhythmic bliss upon the public.

With a unique yet authentic sound, TUMBAO SOCIAL brings you some of the finest dancefloor classics from artists & bands such as Willie Rosario, Roberto Roena, Frankie Ruiz and more; however the creative powerhouse of musicians assembled allows for some respectable home-grown content to ease into the repertoire.

And here they stand eager to share their sound with not only the Australian public, but the world.

Tumbao Social’s debut single Me Quiere Vacilar was released in collaboration with Sydney/Cali Colombia titans Danny G Felix & Malo Malo in January 2022; and they have plenty more material on the way!
