\nLA MAXIMA 79 – LIVE AT THE WARDROBE LEEDS SATURDAY 27TH JANUARY 2018 \nCalle Ocho Leeds, in conjunction with the Scottish Salsa Congress, are proud to present live for the very first time in the UK, one of Europe’s top international salsa bands……LA MAXIMA 79! \nDirect from Italy, they fly in for just TWO exclusive UK debut dates. Friday 26th January at the Scottish Salsa Congress in Edinburgh and then Saturday 27th January, their first ever show in England at The Wardrobe Leeds. One of the original and best live salsa venues in the north of England since it opened in 1999. \nLa Maxima 79 is the brainchild of Italian international salsa DJ Fabrizio Zorro who is also the band’s leader, bongo player and producer. As a salsa congress DJ who loves salsa clasica, mambo and guaguanco from the 60s and 70s, he wanted to put together a contemporary band that would play that style and have that sound. Their first track was premiered on the www.salsa.it compilation Vol 7 in 2010 and in 2013, they released their debut album “Regresando Al Guaguanco” to great acclaim. The tracks were loved by DJs and dancers worldwide, especially dance floor hits like “Pobrecita” and “No Sirvo Pa’Queso”. Tough and kicking salsa and the perfect tempo for dancers, something Fabrizio has made his mission with this band. \nIn 2015, their mambo/pachanga/cumbia single “La Gripe” (“The Flu”) went crazy worldwide with salsa dancers and especially in Cali Colombia. They followed this with their second album “Joseito” in autumn 2016. More great dance floor hits including guaguancos “Nunca Muere El Guaguanco” and “Te Quedaste Sola”,
