As many of you know Palenke has been in the London Latin Scene for quite a long time now. After all these years and efforts, we have finally put together an Album full of feelings, memories, anecdotes and stories we have shared. Most songs composed by Lisandro Zapata are a mix of his Rock and Roll background, modern R&B and hip hop, with a hint of Jazz and funk but as danceable as the lovely Salsa that have kept Palenke alive! More traditional salsas are Adriana Santana’s compositions and a couple of cover songs have been chosen to give more variety to the album. Kinacho, thanks to his experience at recording and sound engineering, has made Palenke’s sound one of the finest of all the bands in London.
Our first Album "Kachaco" is out now!
Palenke, London''s leading Latin American Dance band, was born in 1990 to the collective talents of Fernando Suarez -"Kinacho" and Lisandro Zapata from Colombia. Both are highly professional performers and are widely experienced in the Latin and Jazz scene.
The Band''s eclectic repertoire is passionate, dynamic and eminently danceable: from the characteristically hot blooded tempos of Cuban Salsa and Brazilian Lambada, the traditional folk rhythms of Colombian cumbia and Dominican Merengue, to the latest Caribbean Reggae and universally popular Spanish style "Gypsy Kings".
This all singing band includes the traditional latin rhythm section, piano, guitar, bass, congas, bongos and timbale. It is fronted by Adriana Santana also Colombian, who has become the "Queen of Salsa" in London captivating the audience with her magnetic voice and sensual dancing.
Over the years Palenke has toured: Switzerland (Montreaux Festival), France, Italy, Spain, Tunisia, Morocco, Malaysia, Indonesia, Ireland and Turkey. The band has performed for dignitaries such as Prince Charles, the late King Hussein of Jordan, King Juan Carlos of Spain and has become a spicy ingredient at hotels, clubs and many pop stars parties.
In the UK, the band is well known from North to South as a leading Latin band spreading the Latin fever from small to big audiences. Palenke has been invited to the Barbican Centre, the South Bank, The Edinburgh Festival and several TV shows.
