Del Camino

biog

Inspired by the explosion of the UK Latin scene in the mid 1990's, Del Camino soon established itself as one of the most well-known and respected salsa bands in the UK. Del Camino has performed at a host of well-known venues including Ronnie Scott's, Symphony Hall in Birmingham, The Lowry in Manchester and The Wardrobe in Leeds. Del Camino has also performed at a number of established festivals including Glastonbury 2010, The World Beat Festival, Orange WOW Festival and Party In The Park.

Del Camino has recently restructured its line-up, which now includes Felix Casañas, a celebrated vocalist from Havana, Cuba. A sizzling new formula has been developed between Felix and Alek Sapic, the band’s original lead vocalist and co-founder.

Del Camino has a brand new salsa sound which boasts slick arrangements of pop classics from the likes of Justin Timberlake, Stevie Wonder and Lionel Richie. The band continues to perform an impressive repertoire of well-known salsa classics from the likes of Hector Lavoe, Oscar D'León and Buena Vista Social Club.

Del Camino has supported some of the most respected names in the business including UB40, Robert Plant, Beverley Knight, Tony Christie, Roachford and more recently Plan B. Drawing on a wealth of experience, individual members of Del Camino have also performed with Plan B, The Beat and Courtney Pine. Del Camino continues to maintain their longstanding popular monthly residency in conjunction with Latin Motion at The Jam House in Birmingham on the last Thursday of every month.

Through various influences and creative developments, Del Camino have established a unique sound,
which can be best described as "urban and raw with a Latin twist"

Del Camino loosened up to play in a totally brazen manner, horns slicing without mercy,
piano jabbing hard chords, percussionists putting steam on the walls.
