The Spanish Harlem Orchestra is a Grammy-winning 13-piece collective that represents one of the most formidable and authentic Latin jazz combos of today. Though very much a contemporary band, Spanish Harlem Orchestra pays homage to the traditional Salsa sound popularized but the legendary Tito Puente.
The band was started in 2000 by Oscar Hernandez was primarily known for his work as Ruben Blades' piano-player and musical director. Hernandez has also worked with artists like Celia Cruz & Paul Simon.
