Playing lively Afro-Cuban salsa and Latin jazz, electric violinist and vocalist Susie Hansen has been a favorite in Los Angeles for twenty-five years. Her ensemble, the Susie Hansen Latin Band, has performed to hundreds of thousands of people, and they love to get the audience up and dancing—as Susie says, “We aim for the feet!”
Their music appeals to audiences of all ages and a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds. Susie and her band play familiar and traditional salsa in Spanish, many original salsa and Latin Jazz compositions, Latin-style interpretations of American jazz standards, typico Cuban Charanga music, and great salsa and cha cha cha in English. Their music also includes the popular Latin dance styles of cumbia, merengue and bolero. The salsa vocals are authentic and improvisational.
Her All-Star band features Daniel Castillo on lead vocals and congas, Kaspar Abbo on lead vocals and guitar, Joe Rotondi on piano, and other great musicians. The band is truly a crowd pleaser with its rhythmic energy and drive.
