Cozumel Salsa Bands
El Angelito De La Salsa
Angel Cano arrived to the island from Veracruz Mexico in 2007. He gathers local musicians to offer music at different local restaurants. Frequently he has guest musicians that join in on the action, such as internationally known Jesús Alejandro "el niño" Pérez. Angel plays a variety of styles from traditional Cuban Son to modern musicians like Marc Anthony. He's recorded several songs included "Amor Virtual". Check out his facebook page here.
Another salsa band in Cozumel is Orquesta Mereketengue. Lead Singer Israel Perez also sings with several other bands on the island. They delight dancers to many Latin favorites in Salsa, Cumbia, and Merengue. They play every Saturday and Sunday afternoon as the house band at Sky Reef.
The newest salsa band in Cozumel is Salsere. They play Cuban standards from Celia Cruz and los Van Van. You'll be surprised by Lead Singer Mayret Rosa's powerful voice. In addition to Cuban salsa they also play some common non-Cuban salsa themes. They play every Saturday night at La Casa del Habano, and on Wednesdays at Wet Wendy's.
