Angel Canales


Instantly recognizable for his unique voice, Salsa singer Angel Canales has been a force since he emerged from Latin New York in the '70s. Shining as a symbol of his independent spirit, Canales' bald head and bushy moustache have always stood out against the background of wild-haired salseros -- as has his voice. His wide vocal range and unpredictability stand out in a band that rests on a rock-solid Latin rhythm section and a full brass contingent with jazz leanings. Playing a combination of standards and original material, all of his recordings boast top-notch, original arrangements. A jeweler by profession, Canales was able to stay independent of the Fania Salsa mafia and thus maintain his singular vision. A true original, Canales makes music with integrity and lyrical beauty that also satisfies the most hardcore dancers.
