About this Act

Cafecito plays a lively pre-salsa style of music still heard on the streets of Old Havana today - charanga!

They play cha cha chas, boleros, danzones and Latin jazz, a flavour of which you may have heard on some of the Buena Vista Social Club recordings. Perfect for dancing and background music, weddings, parties, corporate events and Cuban or Latin themed evenings and concerts.
