WANTED: SINGER FOR LONDON LATIN BIG BAND

Hi,
Are you a Spanish-speaking singer with a love of latin music, esp. salsa and cha cha cha classics? We are a mixed south London based salsa band who rehearse fortnightly and have several gigs a year, playing salsa, cha cha cha and latin jazz dance classics. Our music is fast, energetic and upbeat. We are a 10-12 piece comprising rhythm section, all-female horn section, vocals. We love playing together but we need a 2nd vocalist to join our (male) lead vocalist on coros with the possibility of taking some lead vocals in the future. Drop me a line if you’re interested and I can send you a link to our stuff.
Thanks.
Manda (piano player) (female)
