DJ Lubi's Salsa Allstars - A Musical Tribute to Tito Puente


UK salsa/Cuban/Latin music legendary DJ/promoter Lubi Jovanovic aka DJ Lubi, has teamed up with top Latin jazz musician Jonny Enright (trombonist/bandleader of London band Grupo X), to host a night of live salsa/mambo/latin jazz dedicated to the man they called "The Mambo King" and "El Rey De La Salsa" ("The King Of Salsa")….the one and only Tito Puente!

A New York born Puerto Rican, Tito was one of the greatest and best known musicians in Latin music with a career that spanned over 50 years from the 1940s to 2000. A pioneer of mambo and cha cha cha in the 1950s, the king of salsa in the 1970s and a godfather of Latin jazz in the 1980s, Tito released over 100 albums under his name and appeared on many more as a guest.

A master of the timbales and the vibes, he was also a prolific composer who wrote many Latin music anthems including his greatest hit ever "Oye Como Va". Already a Latin music standard by 1970, it became a worldwide pop hit when rock guitarist Carlos Santana covered it that year bringing a whole new generation of fans to Tito Puente’s music. He became a worldwide icon who was known outside of Latin American culture, even appearing as himself in a classic episode of The Simpsons.

In 2023, it’s the centenary of Tito’s birth (20th April) and his music is still giving joy to millions of people worldwide as new fans keep discovering the Mambo King’s huge musical legacy.

DJ Lubi curates an evening of Tito Puente’s music played live by an 11 piece all-star salsa/mambo orchestra featuring musicians from the UK, Spain, Cuba, Colombia and Venezuela – the DJ Lubi Salsa Allstars.

The orchestra features musicians from Grupo X, The Gondwana Orchestra, Siete Rayos, Mojito Band, Vibeology and Os Caras and others who have played with Salsa Celtica, Oscar D’Leon, Larry Harlow, Tumbaito, La Clave, Joe Bataan, Dave Valentin and Jimmy Bosch – 4 brass, 3 percussion, piano, bass, vibes and lead vocals. The perfect combination to celebrate the music of “The King”.

The orchestra will be playing two sets of Tito’s greatest hits with DJ Lubi spinning classic salsa, mambo, son Cubano, guaguanco and cha cha cha before and between sets.
