La Excelencia is “The New Generation of Salsa Dura”, bringing a modern vitality and social consciousness to the genre. These revolutionary salsa ambassadors take their bold new sounds to dancers and hardcore salsa fans worldwide, breaking the mold while remembering their roots. Their music is full of powerful arrangements of free-flowing horns and lively percussion (Latin Beat Magazine). The hard life of the barrio is reflected in La Excelencia’s music through their hardcore salsa sounds known as “salsa dura”.
