After producing an outstanding CD that made its musical debut during the spring of
2004 with the very popular Salsa group known as Orquesta "ClaraSalsa", (sold here at CDbaby.com) songwriter/bandleader Jorge Laureano has launched yet another outstanding production, this time...with his latest musical
group known as... FIESTA Orchestra!
The new CD entitled...”Me Esta Gustando” (I’m Liking It”) features some contemporary new sounds & hip ideas, while several of their songs are also being interpreted in English, much to the delight of their fans and supporters!
Their High-Energy NY Salsa music style always makes an impact during their stage performances but now they hope to see the new CD reach a wider international market just the same! The new FIESTA Orchestra CD is just right for all salseros!
