Europe - Milano - Italy
Maxima 79 Salsa Orquestra was born in Milano – Italy in the year 2010 of the idea of the DJ and Musical Producer Fabrizio Zoro.
Fabrizio Zoro had the magnificent idea of making music, returning to the sound of the 70’s for dancers with a modern sound and, at the same, time of the golden age of salsa in New York.
With two productions made with high quality and an original and rich sound in Afro-Caribbean rhythms.
The two titled albums, Returning to Guaguanco in 2013 and Joseito in 2016, have given him a seat in the best dance halls across the European continent and thanks to all his successes, the orchestra is recognized worldwide as one of the best Salsa groupings for the dancer.
The original compositions by the hand of Fabrizio Zoro founder, director and performer of the bongo, bell and guiro, carrying Afro-Caribbean Rhythms in the soul, at the same time, Fabrizio tells us that Cuba is the most important musical novelty in the whole basin from the Caribbean and the world and for this reason they returned to the origins of the Traditional Salsa with a musical work entitled “Cuban Session” dedicated to typical rhythms of the Big Island such as Timba, the Cuban Son and the Traditional Changüí.
The musical arrangements of the productions were prepared by Fabrizio and Marco Puma, the official pianist of the orchestra and, also, known as the best-known Italian bachatero in the world, but with this album he has shown that his first passion stays within the key that beats in his immense salsa soul.
In their ten years of experience, they have been awarded the Honorable Mention USA and Songwriting Competition awards in 2014.
