"LaTiDo" is the Spanish word for heartbeat and also a play in words with the three musical notes: La-Ti-Do.

Often described as a “Power Salsa 5tet,” the band specializes in Latin danceable traditional music styles, like Mambo, SonCha-Cha-Chá, Cumbia, Merengue, Bolero, Bachata, and other styles combinations usually played under the generic denomination of “Salsa” by much larger bands.

From the Cuban flavor of Buena Vista Social Club to the New York 70’ Salsa groves of Rubén Blades, passing thru Celia Cruz to Trio Los Panchos, to today’s Marc Anthony songs, LaTiDo’s music will grab your attention from start to finish.

Founded in 2003 by re-known “conguero” (conga drummer)  and lead vocalist Edgardo Cambón, this explosive group has garnered a great reputation throughout the Bay Area among dancers and listeners alike, having performed to sold out audiences at re-known venues like Yoshi’s, Yerba Buena Gardens, San Francisco Jazz Festival, Stanford Jazz Concert Series, San José Jazz Festival and Sonoma Jazz Festival to mention a few.

“LaTiDo’s” music will take you back in time, just to rapidly bring you current with the latest songs in today’s latin dance scene. We invite you to dance, but our repertoire is equally enjoyed by the more laid back listener.

Close intricate vocal harmonies, the energetic rhythm of the Congas, Bongó and Timbales, the throbbing pulse of the Bass, the unique sound of the traditional Tres Guitar (a three double set string instrument developed in Cuba) and the jazzy element of the  Piano, Trumpet and Saxophone, give character to the lively compositions, making sure we please every audience.
