With only seven albums to its credit and only fifteen years of existence, Colombia’s Sonora Carruseles has already perfected a trademark sound that is cherished by salsa lovers all over the world. Carrusales pays a moving tribute to the spirit of old, hardcore salsa, while at the same time renewing this all but-forgotten style with the benefits of digital technology. Carruseles’ mission has been to re-record classics from the salsa heyday of the 70’s to preserve them for a new generation of devoted fans.
The group is led by the rhythmically gifted talent of Manolo Puerto, and boasts an illustrious gallery of guest singers that includes Elaine Hernandez and Jo-L, Harold Pelaez, Marihno Paz, Daniel Marmolejo and Luis “Taquito” Ruiz, all of whom are a terrific machinery of non-stop swing.
They have performed all over the world and have proven that hardcore salsa is here to stay. ~ Sonora Carruseles, Salsa Blvd
