Salsa / Latin Wedding Band Hire London - Sounds Of Rio
Since 2003, our established band has built up a reputation for being possibly the most versatile party band in the UK and abroad - Europe, Middle-East, Africa and Brazil.
We have entertained British audiences performing at hundreds of corporate, awards ceremony, gala events, private party and wedding receiving glowing feedback. We also had the opportunity to have delighted celebrities such as Anthony Joshua, Brazilian football legend Pele', the Qatari Royal Family, Tony Hadley, Denise Welch, Lili Allen, to name but a few.
The six-piece lineup includes five musicians on piano/keys, bass guitar, electric guitar, drum kit, percussion and female Brazilian vocalist singing comfortably in Portuguese, Spanish and English. Upon request, this formation is available as a nine-piece featuring a brass section. We have a vast repertoire spanning from traditional Latin & Brazilian music, Latin Pop, Funk and spiced up with a handful of 70s Disco, classic Pop and Chart music. A mixed, energetic musical journey suitable for any occasion, age and audience. It will guarantee that the dance floor will stay packed all night.
Upon request, to please your guests during the reception or while dining, the band can play a background music setlist of a classy and sophisticated repertoire of Smooth Latin Jazz and Brazilian Bossa Nova.

“It is with great pleasure I write this testimonial for Sounds Of Rio Latin Brazilian Show. In Q4 of 2012 we contacted various agencies for a Brazilian Band and dance troupe to perform in Doha, Qatar. After careful analysis we had chosen Tropicalia purely for their past credentials and testimonials. I personally found Leo, Co-founder of Tropicalia and the whole Production Team very easy to work with, creative, extremely helpful and always going out of the their way to further enhance the production. The event in Qatar was extremely unique, with Royal family as guests, ministers and other dignitaries, attending the evening programme, all for SDC 8th Charity Gala Dinner. Tropicalia was able to choreograph a specially produced dance to adhere to cultural sensitivities within the Middle East region, which I found outstanding and very accommodating. The finale of the evening composed of an 11 piece band and 16 person dance troupe to close the evening and bid our guests farewell. I would very much recommend Sounds Of Rio as an entertainment highlight for any event.”

“Bright, colourful, energetic, moving, powerful and emotional. Our wedding day wouldn't have been complete without the pure passion and love we felt from Sounds Of Rio. As a team they truly make the experience unique and comparable to no other. Tailoring a specific routine and performance based on what we wanted, whilst including songs of our choice and even learning a completely new song to accommodate. I couldn't have wished for a better team, from beginning to end it has been wonderful and I am ever so sad it's over. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a alternative to a typical wedding or event. You cannot go wrong with Sounds Of Rio, they are a team who make colourful dreams come true!”A. Aylin – Wedding Reception
“Please Leo, pass on our thanks to everyone who took part yesterday - the drummer and dancers were brilliant - and in the morning meeting everyone said how much they liked them!”H. Boothman – BBC – The One Show
