New England's Premiere Salsa Ensemble



About Us

The Latin Heartbeat Orchestra’s (LHO) commitment to sustaining its cultural music has been the driving force behind this talented ensemble of dedicated musicians. This group has taken pride in being recognized as a preservation band, and the cultural responsibility that comes with it. With its own unique style and sound this orchestra’s impressive resume continues to grow. They have had the honor of participating in major events at some of New England’s premier venues, such as: Foxwoods Casino’s B.B. King Lounge and The MGM Grand; the Connecticut Salsa Festival – 5 years in a row by popular demand; the Boston Salsa Congress; and the Providence Rhode Island WaterFire Festival, where they performed before an audience of over 5,000 people.
