Salsa swing

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 17 November 2010 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

We are back at Groovin' in the City. And today we switch the rhythms to Salsa!

In this shot we see Selene Pangalos, lead singer of the band Selene y su Quimba, which I think means Selene and her Swing. Also on vocals here is Mary Anne Glover.

Yes, this band can really swing - shifting gears between the Latin sounds of Salsa/Timba, Merengue, Cha-Cha and Lambada. Hot!
