in 2008 the band released its first album Que viva Noruega! to excellent critics. It contains10 old norwegian popular tunes re-invented in salsa. 3 songs got an A-listing on national Radio NRK, P1 for 11 weeks which is mostly unusual.

In 2009 the second CD  Ay caramba! with another selection of norewegian pop songs they doidnt know they needed in salsa-version and was released to massive attention from the daily press.A concert-recording togehter with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra (KORK) from the famous Store Studio at NRK, Marienlyst was released in 2011. It was also a TV-program and resulted in a combined CD/DVD called En natt forbi in the norwegian market.
A version released by Sony Mexico was called "Clasicos a lo cubano".
A new CD is being recorded in spring 2014.




  • What if todays/yesterdays Norwegian popular music was transported to another time and place?
  • What if Lynni Trekrem or The Kids got lost in a time-machine that ends up in the year 1950 in the rehearsal-room of the legendary Cuban pianist Peruchin? If so, their original hits would be in capable hands!
  • What if, almost, forgotten Norwegian songs like Naar kastanjene blomstrer i Bygdoy Alle, Jeg tror paa sommeren and La meg vaere ung adopted new life with bloodstreams that swells with vitality and hips that melts with sensuality?
  • Unknown possibilities, designed to moisten up the most rigid sceptic, unveils itselves on the horizon.
