Lula All Stars
Salsa De La Buena! CD
Lula All Stars represents the very best of Lula Lounge’s weekly live salsa series. Their debut CD features the city’s top salsa vocalists backed by an A-list lineup that includes leaders and players from the scene’s most established ensembles, playing a high-energy, uniquely-Canadian version of “salsa dura” that is sure to please dancers both locally and internationally.
The group is unique in its collective approach to creating a new urban salsa sound informed by the multicultural backgrounds of its members. 100% composed, recorded and mixed in Toronto, the songs on the album reflect the urban immigrant experience in both their lyrical content and influences. Listening to the album, one can hear traces of classic Fania recordings, traditional Cuban son, contemporary timba and tropical dance movements rooted in Colombia and Venezuela.
