About this Act

Fiesta Resistànce are a lively 7-piece salsa band based in Cardiff playing the hottest picks of Cuban party music. Salsa and son styles are ignited with dynamic original arrangements featuring blazing trumpets, vocals, crackling percussion, pulsating piano, bass and clavé. They have played Latin nights and functions across South Wales and the West, and guarantee to bring your fiesta to life!

Their set contains unique arrangements of well-known Latin classics (such as 'El Cuarto De Tula', 'Son De La Loma', 'Chan Chan'), some hits from Cuba's top bands (such as Los Van Van's 'Sera Que Se Acabo', Celia Cruz 'La Guarapachanga'), some salsa-flavoured covers ('Valerie', 'Life On Mars') as well as some original numbers by Fiesta Resistànce. It is a set that bounces between salsa, son, merengue and cha-cha-cha, making for unforgettable moments and pure salsa excitement on the dancefloor.
