About the Musician:
SALSA PARA GOZAR DESDE 1986!
“Edgardo & Candela” is a Salsa Band based in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 30 years, making us one of the most established Salsa Orchestras in California.
The instrumentation is piano, bass, trombone, sax, flute, guitar, conga drums, bongo drums, timbales and vocalists. Smaller versions of the band are available upon request, while always maintaining the musical integrity of the genre.
Better known as simply “Candela,” their trade mark is their high energy level performance, featuring great vocals, a tight rhythm section and the powerful sound of the horns. The band features the crop of professional musicians in the Bay Area, which makes for an incredible musical experience every time they play!
During the evening, Edgardo will personally assure that everyone is entertained while he mixes singing tunes by Oscar De León, Marc Anthony, Eddie Palmieri, Rubén Blades, Tito Puente, Guaco, Pete "Conde" Rodriguez, Celia Cruz and Ray Barretto among others, but the real treat here is Edgardo's original music, presenting him as a mature composer and poetic lyricist.
"I am very proud of having shared the stage with this great musicians over three decades now -says band leader Edgardo Cambón - we know each other musically so well, they are indeed my Salsa family! Music for
me- he continues- is all about making people want to dance, have a good time and maybe, even make us all think a little in the process."
