LOS BATUKEROS DE LA CALLE began in the streets of Barcelona. Musicians met when the “Ciudad Condal” (the city shire) was still a centre of free cultural expression - a haven for musicians to jam and busk among the streets and its people.
What unites these artists is their passion for Latin music and for the hot and magic rhythms of Africa. The band now represents musicians from Mexico, Israel, France, Italy and, of course Catalonia.
Their music reflects the encounters between Latin, Salsa and Reggae, coming from an interaction of street musicians from many continents.
They play a journey following rhythms through Latin America. Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico & Brazil give the inspiration to BTK's salsa, where they bring alive these countries' passion for dance and life in music and lyrics.
Created and practiced among audiences who stop to dance in the street, their concerts are the spirit of encounter: of musicians, of music, of people.
