Artists

There are plenty of big names from the world of salsa appearing at the Malta Salsa Festival 2012, from many different locations around the world. Some of them have been around since the days of disco (or near enough). Others are brand new to the scene, fresh enough to show what’s possible in the salsa form, while established enough to be recognized internationally as the big up and coming names that every professional salsero will recognise. Fusing African and Caribbean elements is often not enough for these dancers: They incorporate styles from many eclectic traditions from the local folk traditions of their native countries to alternative jazz and contemporary to bring their own take on salsa.

Here is a list of the big names who have confirmed their attendance at the Malta Salsa Festival 2012.
