What is the difference between a Latin Band and a Salsa Band?
In our modern times, there is a misconception of what is a Latin Band and what is a Salsa Band. A salsa band is a band that normally plays salsa defined by the son or the rumba clave including the cuban timba and occasionally playing some merengue (fast tempo rhythm from the Dominican Republic). They normally don't perform a wider range of latin rhythms. A latin band is a band that performs not only salsa but various rhythms that are part of the Latin America music scope. These might go from bolero, samba, bossa-nova, salsa, merengue, bachata, reggaeton, latin jazz and bomba, just to mention some. When trying to choose between a latin band and a salsa band it is always good to ask for a sample of repertoire to be sure you are getting exactly what you want.
