Rolando Sanchez is exhilarating…stimulating…energizing…intensifying.
This is the latest release from the "King of Salsa" - Rolando Sanchez and his band. Their unique blend of salsa with Hawaiian culture sends you off on an island adventure without leaving the comfort of your home.
"Latin music in the islands could be associated with one person only, it would be Rolando Sanchez. A bundle of unrestrained energy, he leads his band Salsa Hawaii playing timbales, congas, percussions, and taking lead vocals. Even if you think you can't dance, I guarantee that this music will have you on your feet within ten minutes. For the past nine years this energetic band has been at the top of Latin dance music. If you've never experienced the rhythm of Salsa music or the energy of this incredible band, a whole new world awaits you …cha cha cha." - Gusto Magazine - Hawaii
Rolando was born in Masaya, Nicaragua, to a musically artistic family; his father, an accomplished songwriter, pianist, and singer. His mother also played piano and sang as with most of his immediate family. His musical influence began at a very young age playing drums with neighborhood kids emanating the music of the time (i.e.: Beatles, Trini Lopez, Paul Anka, etc.)
His band has been featured in many television shows, specials and music videos in Hawaii and Tahiti, as well as numerous write-ups in National, International, and Local magazines, newspapers, trade magazines and periodicals. For the last 20 years, they have accumulated an astounding collection of awards, certificates of recognition, and proclamations.
Sanchez is a musician that surpasses the boundaries of traditional sounds, using a mixture of both Latin Jazz and Latin Rock. Playing his timbales and congas in a mystifying and enchanting beat, his audience goes wild, dancing uncontrollably to his music. His music is alive and contagious, containing something pleasing to all musical tastes.
