NEW YORK’S OLA FRESCA, REFRESHINGLY WEAVING A MUSICAL BRIDGE BEWTEEN CUBAN SON, SALSA, TIMBA AND FUNK

Award winning Afro-Cuban band Ola Fresca bring their swinging, fearless tropical sounds to CAMELOT LOUNGE directly from Brooklyn, New York!

The energetic eight piece band, weaving the musical bridges connecting Cuban Son, Salsa, Timba and Funk, come to Australia to share a catalogue of music built over ten years. Ola Fresca is a trombone driven, power Salsa octet with a sharp Latin dance focus on poignant songs about immigration, identity, drumming, love, life and more.

Their trademark sound started with rustic Cuban roots and evolved to a robust and funky spectrum of Latin roots styles and instrumental formats fused liberally. Ola Fresca has been making music praised by connoisseurs, newcomers, aficionados, traditionalists, modernists and revolutionaries alike with the New York Times celebrating their “emphasis on songs with characters, word play and mild social ideas...good for dancing and thinking”, Trace Magazine describing them as “a heart stopping smorgasbord of sounds that keeps listeners in a diasporic daze” and the New York Post listing them as “one of New York’s most intriguing voices in Afro- Caribbean music”.
