Biography

SALSARIBA

Style, Energy, Rhythm, and Fun – Salsariba is this and more with original hits such as Peruvian Cha-Cha-Cha and Yo Se Que Te Han Dicho.

Founded in 2004 by singer-song writer Sammy Torres, Salsariba is an experienced all-star group of locally based artists bringing exciting dance beats to salsa music.

Sammy, who grew up surrounded by Salsa and other Latin Rhythms in Peru, learned to sing from his mother. A former Bolero singer, she lit the flame for the fire of passion that Sammy has for music. At age 18, Sammy began performing professionally in New York and has been at it ever since.

While in New York Sammy worked with artists such as Julio Barreto, Antonio Cartagena, and Juan Canevello. He played with bands Combo Ocho and Chimpum York, as well as being the founder of Los Peloteros del Swing.

Salsariba’s inspiration comes from this unique musical background and everyday life. By combining the many styles of Latin music with new styles of rhythm and themes to well known and original salsa songs, Salsariba brings a fresh and unique sound to the Seattle Salsa Scene.
