Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor

8 Year Anniversary

Maykel Blanco - on the set of the video for Bembé Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor filming video clip for "Bembé"

On October 10, 2004, Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor had their very first performance at Casa de la Música Galiano. Their debut album, "Recoge y vete", released in 2006 made the band an overnight success on the international timba scene. In the summer of 2007 the Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor did their first European tour and it was a resounding success with audiences going wild. By the time the band released its second studio album, "Anda y pégate", in 2008, even the hard-to-please Havana audience was convinced that this band was here to stay. They commemorate their eight years with another concert at Casa de la Música Galiano soon. It was scheduled for October 13th, but for reasons beyond their control this concert has been cancelled. Check their Facebook page to see when the new date will be for the anniversaryy celebration.

To date Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor have released three studio CD, one live CD and a live DVD. They are on the verge of releasing their fourth studio CD this fall, having just returned  to Havana from an intense three-week stay in Lima. Here is a little video look at then and now.
