About Alma Latina

Exciting dynamic & experienced Latin group playing salsa & Cuban music in a compact duo, trio or quartet format.
Cuban band
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Alma Latina are very excited to have the wonderful Cuban performer Yuri Moreno. Yuri has a beautiful authentic Cuban voice, is a vivacious performer who also plays percussion. Paul is a pioneer in performing Latin music in the UK having performed since the late 1980's. Paul is also leader of award winning Brazilian music band Viramundo. They perform a wide repertoire of Cuban & Latin pop hits as well as some original material. They can also add a world class Cuban tres player (guitar like instrument characterised on recordings like The Buena Vista Social Club) and/or percussionist to make the line up into a trio or quartet if required. Worried that your crowd might not be able to dance the Latin way? Don't worry because our charismatic & vivacious lead singer 'Yuri' will show them the basic moves. Yuri uses a high quality DPA headset wireless mic which allows her to fully interact with the audience, during the performance or in the breaks to recorded music.

If you are worried about booking these guys-dont! They are absolutely brilliant. Fabulous fun that cuts across all ages, all eras and all tastes. It is impossible not to dance with them playing. We will forever hold just the best memories of that wedding night. We are indebted. It was priceless.

Excellent & everyone felt like dancing at our restaurant/bar event. Punctual, good at staying in touch and prompt in replying. Everybody loved them and their experience in making the evening a success was essential, I wouldn't hesitate to use them again or recommend them.
