LEGENDS OF SALSA: A TRIBUTE TO WILLIE COLÓN

Le Balcon celebrates the musical legacy of the great Willie Colón, a titan of the salsa scene since the mid-60s. Born in the Bronx to Puerto Rican parents, Colón emerged as a standard-bearer for the culture of New York’s working-class barrios. A trombonist, composer, arranger, producer, director and activist, this highly prolific artist has released dozens of solo albums and collaborations that speak energetically to the Puerto Rican experience in New York City. Colón has sold more than 30 million records worldwide, and has collaborated with stars such as Celia Cruz, Héctor Lavoe and David Byrne. 

Experience the infectious energy of classic music by an exceptional artist, with Lengaïa Salsa Brava, a 12-piece ensemble from Montreal, named salsa band of the year at the Canada Latin Awards in 2017.
