Introducing Baile an Salsa from Galway

We are listening to this short EP by Baile an Salsa at the moment.  Its fun, its different and its well recorded. Of late we have been mixing Irish music with lots of foreign influence so why not mix it up with a bit of Salsa. According to their Facebook page "Baile an Salsa are set to the take the Irish music scene by storm. The band sound is an eclectic mix of Irish traditional music and Salsa!

Nine world class musicians from all across the globe have joined together to create the music– they have called "Salsa-Trad". The band blends effortlessly their passion for Irish and Latin music with their contagious style and energy." So check it out and see what you think and if you like it look up their website.  We will follow up with a short review.

Listen to the Soundcloud file to the end.

With a name like Lopez, I guess you would expect me to like Latin Salsa Music,.....which I do, as a musician, well as many other genres of music. I find this to be an interesting blend of two different Traditional music forms. When any type of music is combined into a "new flavor", I'll give it a listen and determine whether I like it. This was enjoyable and made me smile. It reminded me of a "funny" & "silly" movie called "Irish Jam", starring black comedian Eddie Griffin. There, Irish Trad was combined with Hip-Hop,....which, again, made me smile. I've also heard Punk/Irish Trad, Rock/Irish Trad, Jazz/Irish Trad, & Classical/Irish Trad,.......all of which I thoroughly enjoyed. But that's ME!!!! I could imagine some folk thinking, "WHAT ARE THEY DOIN' TO OUR TRADITIONAL MUSIC????" Well, in my humble opinion, I believe they're acknowledging the popularity and acceptance of what we (as TradConnect members) hold dear to our collective hearts. And, YES,'s not Trad, but it is FUN!!!! Cheers,
