Lengaïa’s artistic approach  

Our motto: “La salsa dura de siempre con el sabor de ahora” is what defines our musical proposal. The orchestration of 3 trombones and a baritone saxophone gives an aggressive and powerful identity to our music. Constancy and professionalism govern our work. We maintain the heritage of the 70s’ salsa style with original and innovative songs .
