“Se Prendió” is already on the air!
La Candela Salsa Orchestra launched, past March, its most recent musical work, titled: Se Prendió. The production has the seal of BatLei Productions and represents an investment in the new wave of musicians and projects that regenerate the current offer of salsa music.
“Se Prendió” is loaded with a lot of flavor and energy and promises to put the dance floors on the boil and satiate the appetite of the most demanding dancers. Recorded at Arena Digital studios in Tenerife, it also seeks to offer new proposals in terms of sound design and texture.
La Candela! Who is this band?
La Candela is made up of musicians José Brito (bongó, bell), Rafa “Richie” Rodríguez (voice), Fran “Ciani” Martín (conga, choirs), Alberto Martín (timbal), Alejandro Fuentes (bass), Fonsi Rodríguez ( piano) and Jordi Arocha (vibraphone). This septet, with headquarters in Tenerife, the largest island in the Canary Islands, already brings a lot of stage and studio experience.
The band’s musical influences and references are formed by the songs of Joe Cuba, Cheo Feliciano, Tito Puente, Tito Rodríguez, Bobby Valentin and New Swing Sextet. The 2015 On Fire album was the band’s first Long Play… which, two years later, is preparing to edit its second album: On Time.
Despite being a recent project, the band La Candela is very dynamic and captivating in live situations. A mix between original hits and interpretations of some classics keeps energy high and the audience connected.
Most of the band’s concerts take place in Tenerife but presences are already scheduled in the Iberian Peninsula. Highlight for the presence at the Benidorm Summer Festival.
It is recalled that they have in their portfolio the live recording of the concert of the 2016 edition of the aforementioned event. Perhaps a live record will appear based on that moment.
We look forward to the arrival of the album On Time to hear and enjoy the new proposals of this young band. We keep an eye on the social networks and channels of La Candela and BatLei Productions. The publication will be coming soon!
