Since its early days in 2019, Bantü Salsa has been characterized by its originality. Getting Latin beats to cohabit with the poetic strings of the kora, or delicately orchestrated brass instruments to join with mighty percussions, is a wild challenge that has been mastered thanks to the passion and talent of its members. Bantü Salsa’s members are among the artists who dream of highlighting the multicultural wealth of Québec and of Montréal through music.
