The Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra is a thrilling 11-piece salsa group which plays dynamic dura arrangements of indie rock tunes. Led by percussionist/arranger Gianni Mano (from the Latin-funk legends Radio Mundial), and fronted by Argentinian chanteuse, Solange Prat, the WSO has found an audience among new and classic salsa lovers, quickly becoming one of the most popular bands in New York City.
With an ever-evolving set list that includes songs by Arcade Fire, TV On The Radio, Spoon, M83, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Black Keys, and many more, the WSO has taken the typical salsa form and infused it with a completely modern identity. The explosive arrangements have established the band as a groundbreaking force in the New York underground, and has led to international acclaim for this completely new approach to the genre.
WSO was featured in Rolling Stone's Latin Hot List, on Telemundo and Univision, and on the nationally syndicated program FOX's LatiNation.
