Riamba has become one of the sought after Salsa dance and Latin jazz bands on the London and UK scene today.
The combination of its international musicality, energy and highly rated musicians has made Riamba one of the UK’s sought-after Salsa dance and Latin jazz bands of today.
Riamba’s line-up came about because of the musicians’ joint love of traditional Cuban music in the Son style – the roots of Salsa. Merging their own individual styles, the group has created its own unique sound which combines the rhythms of Latin America with European harmony and the virtuosity of jazz, resulting in compelling music for dancing as well as the concert stage.
Riamba’s musicians, who are from Europe and Latin America, have toured extensively around the world with renowned artists such as Enclavegospel, The Ghana Dance Ensemble, Stewart Copeland (The Police) as well as playing at world-famous venues such as: The Royal Albert Hall, The Royal Festival Hall, Jazz Café, Bolivar Hall, Cubana and The National Theatres (London and Ghana).
As individuals this has led them to perform on tours in the UK and around the world with artists such as: Björk, Jason Rebello, The Ghana Dance Ensemble, Stewart Copeland (The Police) and at venues which include: Pizza on the Park, The 606 Club, The Royal Festival Hall, Glastonbury Festival, The Sydney Festival (Australia) and The National Theatres (London and Ghana).
