Riamba is an exciting Latin and Salsa Band who’s musicians came together through a love of Cuban Son- the roots of SALSA!

With flair for performing, Riamba is one of the most sought after and lively Latin music bands on the London scene today.

Its flexible 3 to 7 piece line-up is led by a superb female vocalist and backed by a strong rhythm section which includes: piano, trumpet, bass and typical Latin American percussion.

With their combined musical talents, the group is perfectly suited for the many different occasions and requests that Riamba receives; from a fully blown Salsa dance band with optional dance tuition, to a more relaxed event where lively background music in the Latin style is required.
