La Sonora Libre presents “Más Que Salsa”, his second studio album. Recorded in the legendary Nomada 57 studio in Barcelona - Spain, the new album shows a powerful urban sound where, the tradition of hard Salsa and Latin jazz is mixed with the original sound of the orchestra, as a result of three years of tours, concerts, friendship and musical work.

Produced by the percussionist and director of the orchestra Mauricio Ochoa, “Más Que Salsa” contains 9 tracks: 8 original compositions by Mauricio Ochoa, "Papa" Orbe Ortiz and Rafa Madagascar who is also the pianist and arranger of the album. At his original songs join a salsa version of "Nuestro Juramento”, a classic bolero popularized by Julio Jaramillo in Latin América.

Why "More Than Salsa / Más Que Salsa”?

For La Sonora Libre It is very important the message is projected through the music. Through the years, the salsa music proposals have been removed the social background from his content, one of the main reasons for the existence of this genre. The way we conceive salsa music is with the social content, with its claim, with the joy of saying what we think in an honest way and through the language that we know. Likewise with the musical arrangements, we do not make salsa because that is commercial or is fashionable; for us, salsa is part of our way of being, is our means of expression.
That is "More Than Salsa/Más Que Salsa", because in addition to dance music is also music for thinking.
