ROOTS ARENA STAGE - Friday 12th JULY
Urban Salsa from the streets of Bogota! LA-33 are huge in their home county, and have the freshness that only a young, hard salsa band can have. Founded in 2002 in Bogotá by the two brothers Sergio and Santiago Mejia, their debut self-titled album, released in 2004 as an independent production, won immediate success for its arrangements, lyrics, clean recording and great sound.
Now embarking on their second World tour, they are reaching European audiences with their irresistible and infectious urban salsa concerts. This is a band that generates excitement and does it with a sense of humor. There is no stuffiness here, and the music is totally refreshing.
“I loved this storming assault of Latin brass when we reviewed the record, but having seen them live I'm now convinced they are one of the best party bands on the planet.” Songlines
