Formed in Spring 2009, Diáspora is a group of musicians from a multitude of different backgrounds and walks of life brought together to play LATIN MUSIC. Their music celebrates the unity and diversity of rhythms that emerged out of the African Diaspora and their dissemination throughout the Americas... they create, they blend, they transform, they transmit. Most importantly, they have come together with a common objective: to SHARE and to EMBRACE.
Diáspora has performed all over the UK, touring concert venues, events (private/corporate), festivals, weddings and parties. They have had fantastic reviews; from dancers both seasoned salseros and amateur amantes who have come to enjoy their experience, keeping them on their feet all night, aficionados of the music and general punters out for a great time. The buzz that they have created has been fantastic and the quality of the musicians in the band has drawn in considerably large audiences. Every show is like a new beginning, and they always succeed in creating that magical atmosphere. No matter how much the band develops from show to show, their fundamental aims remain the same: to share and to embrace. The band is a crossroads of musicians coming from different backgrounds, constantly returning with new gems and sparks of inspiration - in this sense, it is a true Diáspora. Through these journeys, they have not only learned about music, but they have learned about life... Salsa is rooted in the African trinity of love, food and religion (emotional, physical and spiritual fulfilment) and this is at the heart of their music.
