Adelaide Tropical

 

with Music Director Serafin Aguila

 

Adelaide Tropical is a live salsa band based out of Los Angeles, California led by vocalist and trumpet player Adelaide Benavides.

 

Due to the success of her Latin Top40 show at the Disneyland resort, which was an immediate success and now the band plays year-round at the park and at other popular salsa venues in Los Angeles.

 

Adelaide, with a bachelor's degree in Jazz Studies and master's degree in Afro-Latin music and versatile performing experience has created different successful formats of the Adelaide band.

 

Brought together some of Los Angeles' finest salsa musicians whose careers involve working with famous salsa artists such as Celia Cruz, Tito Nieves, Poncho Sanchez, Tito Puente, Jerry Rivera and more. The band's repertoire ranges from classics by Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Buena Vista Social Club to more modern hits from Gloria Estefan, Enrique Iglesias, and Luis Fonsi.

 

Part of Adelaide's success at Disney is her ability to put together a show of Latin music that people from all parts of the world can enjoy, recognize, or connect to. This paired up with a high energy performance and a big band sound, will make you want to get on your feet!
