La Excelencia, best known as 'The New Generation of Salsa Dura,' is a Salsa Dura music orchestra based in New York City, New York. The orchestra brings modern vitality and social consciousness to the salsa genre, taking their bold sounds to salsa dancers and fans around the world. “La Excelencia represents something very significant, a return not just to the classic formula of salsa but to the virtues of it,” says Aaron Levinson, a Grammy-winning producer. “They are going back to the more eclectic period when salsa was street music, playing with spirit and integrity and writing socially relevant music again.”
Founded in 2005 by owner Jose Vazquz-Cofresi, La Excelencia boasts an 11-piece orchestra with music full of powerful arrangements, free flowing brass and hard-driving percussion. Under the bands own label, Handle With Care Productions, Inc., La Excelencia has released three CDs “Salsa Con Conciencia,” (Salsa with Awareness/ Conscience), “Mi Tumbao Social,” (My Social Drumbeat) and most recently, “Ecos Del Barrio,” (Echoes of the Neighborhood). In addition the BBC did a special of a live performance of La Excelencia at the Barbican in London, and they have also been featured in 'The New York Times' (Full Story), cover of 'Latin Beat Magazine' (Full Story), 'So You Think You Can Dance', 'Zumba Fitness', countless salsa/world music compilations, motions pictures, instructional DVDs, and their music can be heard on radio stations and satellite radio both nationally and internationally.
With an adoring fan base that spans the globe, La Excelencia has successfully created a revolutionary movement of Salsa. From festivals, club venues to concert halls and congresses, their bold sounds and vibrant stage characters will take fans and hardcore salseros into their very own musical journey. It's not unusual to hear the crowd chanting, “Encore, Encore!” or "Otra, Otra!” in Spanish. The performance is team work, with every member of the orchestra having their moment to shine. They know how to captivate and work the crowd and give you a show like no other. But even after all the fame La Excelencia has built for themselves, they continue to be humble, and down to earth. The orchestra signs CD's, takes pictures with their fans, and takes the time to listen to what their fans have to say. La Excelencia keeps it real, they never forget where they came from, and are thankful for all their success.
