Monday April 30, 2007, Salsa Loca for the second time had the great honour of playing at the biggest and most popular Salsa club in Berlin, Havanna.

And like the first time the venue was literally packed with 600 inside and about 200 hopefuls who couldn't get in. The occasion for the concert was the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Berlin Salsa club.

Thanks to Ronny (the owner of Havanna) and DJ Michael (standing between Signe and Tonny on the picture) for again looking to the North for a Salsa band for this great event.

The photos - except the first - are all taken by the official photographer from the Berlin party site,

February 2005 Salsa Loca visited the only venue in Copenhagen dedicated solely to World Music, Etnorama - and according to the venue it was their so far biggest crowd to a Salsa concert.

Among the guests - and also appearing as a guest singer in the end of the second set - was the Copenhagen based Cuban singer Ernesto Manuitt internationally known as one of the former lead singers of the Cuban band, Klimax.

Also among the guests was photographer Leif Elg (1945-2006), and we are greatful for having been given the opportunity to here show our favourites among his many excellent shots from a great night at Etnorama. All photos from the concert as well as photos from other Salsa nights covered by Leif Elg can be seen on Leif's page at

On a sad note:
It is with great sadness that we have to tell you Leif is no longer with us, having passed away on August 1, 2006, after a prolonged illness.

Wednesday Dec. 29, 2004, Salsa Loca had the great honour of playing at the biggest and most popular Salsa club in Berlin, Havanna.

And it turned out to be a night that we (the band) will late forget. More than 500 Salsa lovers found their way to the club this night to hear Salsa Loca from 'little' Denmark.

The Salsa Loca mini CD has during most of 2004 enjoyed one of the top position at the respected DJ Michaels play chart - and has been a 'local hit' at the club in 2004. Salseros and Salsa DJs from other parts of Germany were present, too, to experience the band that has received so much positiv notice in Germany and Berlin in particular in 2004.

At the day of the concert Signe (Asmussen) and Tonny from Salsa Loca were guests in a live program at Radio MultiKulti, which is based in Berlin. That Salsa and World Music is big in Germany is underlined by the fact that the radio station transmits World Music to half of Germany 19 hours a day seven days a week.

Thanks to Ronny (the owner of Havanna) and DJ Michael (to the left in picture above) for making our trip to Berlin possible - and to the audience for an unsurpassed reception.

The first set of photos shown here are taken by the official photographer from the Havanna Salsa Club, Wolfgang Brückner - and we are greatful that we have been allowed to show his excellent photos here. Especially the many photos of the Salsa dancing couples are worth a visit.
The second set of photos are taken by Tonny Pedersen before and after the concert and in the interval between the two sets.

Thursday Dec. 2, 2004, Kulturhuset Klaverfabrikken in Hillerød featured live Salsa for the first when Salsa Loca came by.

To the greater part of the audience Salsa as a musical genre and dance was all new, but just about all participated nevertheless eagerly in the introductional Salsa lesson - and started what became a funfilled Thursday night in Hillerød.

Thanks to Jens Rømer - one of the owners and pioneers behind Klaverfabrikken - for inviting Salsa Loca to Hillerød - and for allowing us to show his photos from the evening at this site.

Salsa Loca visited Copenhagen Jazzhouse for the fifth time in October 2004 - and despite the rainy autumn weather there was a full house. In the crowd were two photographers.

The dance floor was packed with Danish salseros and a great positive vibe. Photographer Nana Hee Jepsen was there once again with her camera to immortalize the evening, her focus this time being the dance floor.

The first photo shows New York-style teacher Asger 'The Shark' Garnak (in the middle) in the delectable company of girlfriends Mette and Barbara, displaying the special Copenhagen Jazzhouse Cuban treat he had just won in a competition on this site before the concert.

Photograher Ulrik Teisner had found his way to Copenhagen Jazzhouse, too, and had his camera lens turned towards the stage all night to capture the action on stage.

Salsa Loca played June 2004 at the Potsdamer Stadtfest, the concert being the band's first concert in Germany and in fact outside Denmark if Salsa Locas numerous visits to Skåne in the Southern part of Sweden are not counted.

The charming Luisenplatz with the Potsdamer Brandenburger Tor made up the most beautiful concert setting for the many who came to watch, listen and dance. It was clear that the many local salsa dancers as well as those travelling to Potsdam this night from Berlin enjoyed dancing through the night.

After the conclusion of this year's edition of the Potsdamer Stadtfest the local press hailed the Salsa Loca concert as the highlight of the City Festival. Shortly after the return to Copenhagen, Salsa Loca was asked to return for the Potsdamer Stadtfest in 2005!

The event could have turned out much less successful though: The fortnight prior to the day of the concert had been with rain and the concert was outdoor. Furthermore the German football national team had good chances of qualifying to the quarter finals of the European championships in a match that would have been played at the same time as the concert - and which would have emptied all German streets and squares for other purposes than watching football. But the sun broke through in the afternoon the day of the concert and Germany didn't make it to the quarter finals!

The photographer Ralf Bölke of the Potsdam Salsa association,, was busy with his camera during the concert and has kindly allowed Salsa Loca to use the fine result of his work that night. Salsa Loca would also like to warmly thank Jochen (Woller) - also from the Potsdam Salsa association - for making our stay in Potsdam very comfortable, indeed.

Since 1999 Salsa Loca has been featured every year at the annual carnival in Copenhagen - and again this year.

Viggo Peetz, a prominent member of the great but long ago departed Copenhagen samba school, Kolibri, and now a Cuban resident, was attending the concert with a camera.

The Cubans have a well known reputation of knowing how to party - and Viggo's photos support this allegation.

Salsa Loca visited in December 2003 Copenhagen Jazzhouse for the fourth time. It was the last concert of the year and the last for several months as more than half of the band in January/February 2004 visits South America (Cuba and Brazil).

On a night with other tempting salsa music offers in Copenhagen, a local weather forecast promising storm after midnight and the final night in the popular Danish television program 'Star for a night' it was a great pleasure that so many turned up (thank you).
So after a most satisfying concert with an excellent sound engineer (thanks again) and a most gratifying atmosphere at the club the well complesion of the last concert of the year was accordingly celebrated afterwards backstage!

In the crowd and backstage was Nana Hee Jepsen with her camera, and she has tried to capture the energy and concentration on the stage and the relaxation backstage afterwards.

Salsa Loca visited October 2003 'Gran Teater for Dans' in Århus at a concert arranged by the local Salsa club, Club Camaleon. Salsa dancers from Århus turned out in strength and the constantly packed dance floor served as a true witness that Århus is a major city at the Danish Salsa map!

Amongst those attending the concert was photographer - and Salsa dancer - Leif Nygaard which resulted in a series of good spirited photos. On one of the photos You'll see the popular Dutch Salsa instructor Morry with dancing partner Aronnette Martis taken from their show during the intermission.

The popular Copenhagen salsateque, Columbus at Nørrebrogade, had a change of owners in the Summer of 2003, and the new owners, Jon Brüel and Mogens Kischinovsky, soon begun rebuilding the place.

As a 'gift' to the Copenhagen Salsa audience while awaiting the reopening of the popular night club, Latin Quarter - as the salsateque is now known as - arranged for an outdoor late summer concert with Salsa Loca at the Café-Pavillonen in Fælledparken.

In the crowd was Nana Hee Jepsen with her camera, and here are some of her shots taken before the dark.

In August 2002 Salsa Loca played in the Tivoli Gardens at their Saturday nite party on Plænen for the third year in a row. As in the two previous years, the benches in front of the stage were removed, and the floor was packed to the limit.

The event was captured by the lenses of our two busiest photographers - and thanks for that!

Our ubiquitous Salsa photographer, Nana Hee Jepsen, captured the atmosphere backstage and during the sound check. She even managed to get a few shots of dancers in the audience during the show.

Our photographer, Lars Nybøll, who is also the man behind our press photos, showed up with the expensive lenses to play with the light of the Tivoli Gardens and the movements of the Salsa dancers. That resulted in these different and brillant photos.

The horn section on this occasion was augmented with Michael Mølhede (tpt).
Special guest in the rhythm: Edwin (guiro).
Dancers on stage: Juan Armand Cureaux, Dainerys García Hernandez, Charlie Pedro Ibanez, Trine Louise Koch, Sergio Bedoya, Angelika Nallino, Ramon Arturo Christiansen and Sara í Dali Hedeland.

In 2001 Salsa Loca played at the Saturday nite party at Tivoli's Plænen. The benches in front of the stage were removed, making way for a dance floor packed to bursting point. On stage, 10 dancers from Cuba and Denmark made sure there was plenty to look at. And we had, of course, made sure that Nana Hee Jepsen was invited. Here's a selection of what she got out of that occasion.
