Trad and salsa mix in Naul
The unique sound of Baile an Salsa came to thrill a Naul audience recently when they took the stage at the Piper's Garden in the Seamus Ennis Arts Centre.
Baile An Salsa brings together an international mix of world-class musicians to deliver a distinctive blend of Latin rhythms and traditional Irish Music - a fusion which they call 'Salsa-Trad'.
The musicians seamlessly blend their influences from Latin America, Europe and the United States to create a contemporary twist on traditional tunes with original compositions.
Vocals in English, Spanish and Irish, are provided by the band's founder, Andres Martorell, meld with the group's vibrant combination of instruments, creating a full, rich sound that is fun and danceable.
The local audience enjoyed this unique fusion of Irish and Latin American sounds in the beautiful surroundings of the Piper's Garden outdoor performance space at the Seamus Ennis Arts Centre in Naul.
It was all part of the Summer Garden Party series that has so far seen acts as diverse as Usher's Island and Rodney Crowell perform.
The Garden Party series has also hosted special events like a 40th anniversary screening of Grease followed by the sounds of rock 'n' roll band, Riley and the Moonrockers. They have all conspired to create a summer of memories at the Naul venue.
