Violinist Susie Hansen plays high energy Afro-Cuban Latin Jazz and Salsa. Her 10-piece Los Angeles-based band plays lively and joyful Latin music that aims for the feet. With Susie's powerful violin as the lead instrument of the ensemble, the band combines straight-ahead jazz with traditional Cuban Charanga and hard-driving Salsa to create their own unrivaled style. 'Her violin speaks the language of Latin jazz with total fluency,' according to Mark Holston, JAZZIZ Magazine. 'It's a sizzling, swinging Salsa Band,' says Phil Elwood of the San Francisco Examiner. 'Hansen can solo as if her bow was afire. The whole room was jumpin' for joy.'
