★★★★ BAND BIO ★★★★
Bristol Salsa Orchestra is a fusion of Latin musicians from Bristol and other UK cities. Willian Velasquez, who is the producer and manager of this project, links his ideas and creations to different high-level artists to create a show where dancers enjoy to dance. The director is the Cuban Michel Padrón
Michel Padrón was born into an artistic family in Havana (Cuba) in 1976. At the tender age of 8, he began to learn how to play the piano. Two years later the trumpet became his main instrument. Thanks to the awards he collected as a young trumpet player, he qualified to enter the prestigious Amadeo Roldan Conservatory. He graduated in 1995; that combined with his high achievement at the Conservatory lead him to be selected to join the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba (finishing in 2004) Not only has Michel been well recognised throughout his career for his work as a trumpeter in the classical music scene, but also for his tours and presentations around the world collaborating with various artists from different nationalities playing a wide range of music genres.
He has worked with Billy Cobham, Cesarea Évora, Toto la Momposina, Jaques Morelenbaun, Seckou Keita, Chucho Valdés, Leo Brower, Claudio Abbado, Sir George Martin, Omara Portuondo, Nayaband, Gran Big Band del Cabaret Tropicana, Mariano Cívico, Alexis Lefevre, Germán López, Roots Harmonies, ASERE, AMJ Collective and many more.
He has performed at various Jazz and World Music festivals in over 20 countries in Europe, America, Asia and Africa. Michel has recorded with several artists from all the Continents on independent and recognized labels such as Putumayo, BMG & Warner.
His work as a composer has featured in films, TV shows, teleplays, documentaries, commercials, short films and theatres in Cuba, Spain, United Kingdom and Germany amongst others.
He has been living between Spain and the UK since 2010, where he is performing continuously. Currently he is working on several music projects and recently has released the first single of his first Solo album, where his unique trumpet sound will merge with different grooves & styles.
