Orquesta Dharma is a salsa/latin jazz orchestra from the Bay Area of CA. It's members include several Grammy winning musicians, and the very best of the Bay Area latin music scene. The group's debut album, "Road Warrior" won the "Next Generation Album of the Year" at the Latin Jazz Corner's anuual poll ( 2011), and was also selected as one of the top latin albums of the the year by Rudy Mangual of Latin Beat Magazine. The band is equally adept at providing hard hitting salsa, mambo, cha cha cha and other dance grooves ( Cumbia, Merengue), for the dance floor reception, and reserved, mellow, latin jazz to accompany a reception dinner. Music from the band's current release "La Clave del Gumbo", has been featured on the salsa charts of the popular New York -based NewGenSalsa publication, reaching the #2 spot among the very biggest names in latin music, with the track "La Esencia del Guaguanco". Please note that any quote you receive from the band also includes the sound system (PA) rental and technician.
