Join us for a great night of live salsa and dance.

Loudly embracing a philosophy that a young, hot and diverse Salsa band in Seattle is undoubtedly vanguard, Eléré presents a glimpse into the future of Salsa as a global music in Seattle and beyond. An 8-piece salsa band founded in late 2019 by percussionist and vocalist Daniel “el buho” Mendoza, Eléré quickly took on a mixture of emerging and seasoned instrumentalists on the scene with the aim of pushing the music in new directions. Honoring the rich archive of Salsa and Latin Jazz, the group started off playing shows and parties throughout Seattle with arrangements of classic repertoire. Their original music, spearheaded by their musical director, guitarist and cuatrista Carlos “donde estoy” Snaider, contains messages of the healing power of nature, meditation and storytelling that is characteristic of Salsa lyrics, yet with specific homage to the Pacific Northwest roots of the group. All the while accompanied by tight horn lines and a rhythm section that embraces developments from modern jazz and timba, making the Eléré sound altogether fresh and captivating.

Eléré features Danny Mendoza on Congas/Vocals, Carlos Snaider on Guitar/Vocals, Kelsey Mines on Bass/Coro, Steve Smith on Bongo, Gabriel Cerna on Timbales, Elijah Clark on Trombone, Brandon Hunter on Trombone/Coro and Erik Esvelt on Trumpet. 

 DJ Ekue will play Salsa, Bachata, Cumbia, and Merengue between sets.
