(Florida), USA – Venezuela’s most famous salsa orchestra, Dimensión Latina, has
a new album out.
With Al Paso, Dimensión Latina brings back their greatest hits
performed by the new voices of the group.
A thirty two year artistic career is a difficult feat to sum up in a few
words. When one speaks of Dimensión Latina living legends such as Oscar D’León and Andy Montañez
come to mind. The band has served as a school for several generations of top
salsa musicians. Dimensión Latina is one of the most admired and lauded orchestra’s
of the Latin American continent.
