Born amid the fabled stylistic melting-pot of Edinburgh’s 1990s folk scene, Salsa Celtica’s unique eponymous fusion of Latin and Scottish/Irish music went on to major international success, winning fans both across the folk/Celtic circuit and on Colombian or New York dancefloors. Here, an expanded line-up of over a dozen musicians from Cuba, Venezuela, Scotland, Ireland and beyond, plus old friends and special guests, reconvene to celebrate the band’s quarter-century, back in their favourite Celtic Connections venue, launching the first of two compilation albums to be released in 2020. It promises to be one mighty fiesta.

Bringing together three of Scottish music’s most exciting young players – Ali Levack (pipes/whistles), Pablo Lafuente (guitar) and Ewan Baird (bodhran) – Project Smok revitalise their native West Coast traditions with a high-octane brew of funk, jazz and electronic stylings, and are soon to release the follow-up to their superb debut album Horizons. “Sophisticated and intricate. . . sheer, unadulterated virtuosity” (MNPR Magazine)
