The Orquesta Palo Mayor is originally from the charming country of Venezuela. Country of great salsa music tradition, it is one of the references of this musical genre worldwide.
Beginnings of the Orquesta Palo Mayor
The orchestra was born out of the idea of Venezuelan percussionist Eduardo Amundarain in December 2007. The orchestra’s rehearsals began in late January 2008 with the musical direction of pianist José Tuky Torres.
At the end of 2008, the recording of what would become the album En Homenaje Al Bailador began, having been completed in January 2010. It was published by Weave Records.
Since then, the Palo Mayor orchestra has been a regular presence at events, highlighting its participation in the international festival Toros Y Salsa in Dax, France.

The production En Homenaje Al Bailador consists of ten songs, five of which are original compositions. The orchestra sounds very good, with great rhythmic accuracy and intimacy between the various instruments.
Full of dynamism, the orchestra proposes evolved musical arrangements with contrasts and a strong character. We feel the people’s soul and their way of living.
