This is not your grandma's salsa band. If you like Salsa Dura, we do it hardcore; if you like it like that, we do it like that w/ bilingual boogaloo & if you're nostalgic for the Island breezes we do Boricua roots of plena & bomba while bopping it with Afro-Cuban traditions. Intergenerational and co-ed, we make you dance and think as we make our music's history come alive on the dance floor or concert stage.

Featuring the genre's best percussionist after Tito Puente, Nicky Marrero is one of many Fania All-Stars to join ZDB in a hi-octane Salsa Dance Band w/roots in oldskool music from the streets of Latin N. Y. to the urban sounds of Latin jazz. ZDB brings an authentic bi-lingual & bi-cultural musical experience and cultural history from Spanish Harlem.

Hispanic Magazine calls "Spanish Harlem's Zon del Barrio, an outfit steeped in nostalgia while exploding into the future." Zon del Barrio brings its foot-stomping Latin dance drive from the streets of Spanish Harlem to Global Stages.

Zon del Barrio is a play on words for the musical genre of "son" found in all the "barrio zon"es of Latino communities worldwide. Bringing dance style classic Afro-Antillean music from the barrios, Zon del Barrio brings its energizing, foot stomping, funk-based classic salsa (Afro-Cuban), plena, bomba (Afro-Boricua) & boogaloo to their live performances.

Old skool classic salsa gets a new beat with Zon del Barrio's particular dance tunes expressing the musical soul of the barrios in the style of Puerto Rico's most popular exponent, Cortijo y su Combo. Cortijo's band broke through the color barrier in Puerto Rico in the late 1950s and Zon del Barrio is a tribute to those efforts and a celebration of Afro-Antillean music.

From the plena (popular during the turn of the last century) to the saucy strains of salsa amid the backbeat of reggaeton laced with jazz, Zon del Barrio brings the beat of the streets to the hearts of dancers everywhere.

Aurora & Zon Del Barrio played for my fiancee's surprise 50th birthday party and made it a truly special day. Not only are they extremely talented musicians, they are wonderful entertainers and clearly enjoy what they are doing. Our guests had so much fun, danced all day, and loved the beautiful music.
